Charleston Jazz this week announced Tatjana Beylotte was hired as the new Executive Director. She was hired in July 2018 as the Director of Development at Charleston Jazz.
Beylotte has held a variety of leadership roles and has 19 years of experience in fundraising for arts organizations. Before coming to Charleston Jazz, she was the Deputy Director at the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art at the College of Charleston. Prior to that role, Beylotte was Executive Director of 1708 Gallery, a non-profit space for contemporary art in Richmond, VA. She also worked as Arts Education Grants Coordinator for the Virginia Commission for the Arts, and Director of Development for International Arts and Artists in Washington, DC.

“I couldn’t be more honored and excited to have the opportunity to lead this important organization and keep jazz alive and thriving in our community," Beylotte said. "As the only organization solely dedicated to the presentation of jazz performance and education in our community, in addition to the deep roots of jazz in the Lowcountry, Charleston Jazz is fundamental to the arts ecosystem and cultural life in Charleston and beyond.”
