Halifax Jazz Festival welcomes new blood

We have some new talent joining the ranks at the Halifax Jazz Festival.

After an intense 12+ months, the search for a new Executive Director has ended and Andrea Dawson Thomas has filled the position.

“Andrea brings a skill set that we’re lucky to find right here in Halifax, and all of us at JazzEast feel very lucky she has agreed to come on board.” says Board Chair Andrew Killawee.

Andrea has over 20 years of experience in the Entertainment industry with a resume that includes work with the Atlantic Film Festival, ECMA’s, and Magnetic North Theatre Festival.

In addition to Andrea, Krista Keough has been appointed the position of Festival Manager.  Krista has been a long time contributor to the arts in the forms of manager, publicist for both music, film, and television productions and has experience as an ad exec, fundraiser, writer, and teacher.

These two strong women will definitely put some fresh blood into the exciting Jazz Fest Scene!  We can’t wait to see the great work they do!

Congratulations ladies!
