Jasja van Andel
Head of Operations
Jasja has over 30 years of experience in the presentation of live performance. He began his career in theatre, working on opera, ballet and dance, repertoire theatre and large commercial musicals. In the mid-to-late nineties, Jasja was involved with the start-up of a number of major venues in the Netherlands. It was during these years that he started to specialise in audio system design for live performance.
In 2003 he continued his career at the Barbican Centre in London, moving into technical management with a focus on the production of live music. Jasja had the fortune of working with the top of the international music scene, from large orchestral (LSO, BBCSO), modern classical (John Cage, Kronos) to all ranges of contemporary music (highlights included Solomon Burke, Ike Turner, Scott Walker and festival work co-produced with the BBC).
As a freelancer, Jasja toured for two decades with several international bands and festivals across Europe and the US. In 2012 he moved to Melbourne, continuing his career at the Melbourne Recital Centre.
