New Acting Mahaiwe Leader To Take Charge In January

The Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center
Janis Martinson

Beryl Jolly has been Executive Director of the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center in Great Barrington, Massachusetts since it was first created as a nonprofit in 2005. Now, the center will see its first major leadership transition as Jolly prepares to depart from the role at the end of 2019. Janis Martinson, the Mahaiwe’s Director of Advancement, will serve as Acting Executive Director starting in 2020. She sat down with WAMC to talk about what the change means for the Mahaiwe and for her.

Josh Landes has been WAMC's Berkshire Bureau Chief since February 2018, following stints at WBGO Newark and WFMU East Orange. A passionate advocate for Western Massachusetts, Landes was raised in Pittsfield and attended Hampshire College in Amherst, receiving his bachelor's in Ethnomusicology and Radio Production. His free time is spent with his cat Harry, experimental electronic music, and exploring the woods.
