A more than six decade old music festival in Ventura County has named a new Executive Director.
Ab Sengupta will take over as the new head of the Ojai Music Festival later this month. Sengupta was CEO, and Artistic Director for Fontana Chamber Arts in Kalamazoo, Michigan. During his tenure there, he eliminated hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt, and expanded community involvement with the internationally know festival.
He was selected by the Ojai Festival as the result of an international search.
Sengupta replace Jeff Haydon, who left in September to head a music and arts center in New York.
