Alfredo Santa Ana appointed General Manager

The board of directors and Artistic Director David Pay are proud to announce that Alfredo Santa Ana has been appointed General Manager for Music on Main.  His new position is effective immediately.

Alfredo began work with Music on Main in April 2011 as Administrative Manager.  His keen insight and excellent administration combines with a palpable passion for Music on Main’s activities.  Under Alfredo’s leadership, Music on Main has developed rock-solid financial systems, increased support from private foundations more than 20-fold, and embarked on major new projects including our upcoming co-location with the PuSh International Performing Arts Festival, Touchstone Theatre, and DOXA Documentary Film Festival to a new 8,500 square foot administration and rehearsal centre.

Born in Mexico City, Alfredo completed his DMA in composition from the University of British Columbia.  He was the inaugural Wall Composer in Residence at the Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies at UBC, and his compositions have been performed across North America.

As a cornerstone of Music on Main’s team, Alfredo works side-by-side with Artistic Director David Pay to provide “western Canada with one of the finest windows onto the post-classical scene” (Gramophone Magazine).
