She was a prizewinner prizewinner in the national Jugend musiziert competition and a member of the State Youth Orchestra in Baden-Württemberg and the German National Youth Orchestra, as well as winning a scholarship from the DAAD and the Baden-Württemberg String Instrument Collection. She joined The Deutsche Kammer­philharmonie Bremen directly after completing her studies in 1992.

Here, Beate Weis is also very active in promoting music – for example within the scope of orchestra projects such as ›Response‹, the ›Musical Treasure Hunt‹, concert introduction events (including ›Genial‹ in cooperation with the Bremen children’s and youth theatre, MOKS) or teaching and coaching lay musicians. As a soloist she has performed with the Bremen University Orchestra, Oldenburg Chamber Orchestra and concerto armonico Freiburg. Beate also devotes herself intensively to chamber music. She was a member of the Ensemble Lesmona founded together with other orchestra colleagues and has her own concert series in the Bremen Silbermanufaktur Koch und Bergfeld. Here she combines programme planning with recitals.

Apart from her music, Beate Weis runs a wine shop, ›Flaschenweise‹, which sells choice, mostly organic wines.
