I was born in Basel, Switzerland, but have lived most of my life in Japan, California, Scotland and recently in Vienna, Austria.


In Tokyo I worked for Japan Arts Corporation, a major classic music management company, organising orchestra tours throughout Asia. (Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra,Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra and English Chamber Orchestra, to name just a few).

But more than that, I have acquired a deep knowledge of Japanese culture and business practices, and I know how to successfully bridge between Japan and their Western partners. 

In Los Angeles I was specialising on interpreting and translating  between Japanese, English and German.


Here in Vienna I have worked for Vienna's English Theatre as PR manager, event organiser, as well as interpreter and translator.

Finally, I have set up my own business, KATO CONNECTIONS, where all the above experiences come together!

I offer  interpretation services in three languages as well as music management with focus on Japan and Korea concert tours for European musicians.

Since 2021 I have launched my own chamber music concert cycle at the Stadtcasino Basel, Switzerland, KAMMERMUSIK VOM FEINSTEN

Productive efficient communication and organisation in all my undertakings are my passion and commitment.
