Overture Center Foundation, the private nonprofit organization that took over management of Overture Center for the Arts on Jan. 1, has named longtime performing arts executive Ted DeDee as the new president and CEO of the 200,000 square-foot, seven-venue performing arts center in downtown Madison.
DeDee will be introduced to the community at a news conference Wednesday afternoon at Overture Center for the Arts.
DeDee comes to Madison from New Albany, Ohio, near Columbus, where he oversaw the building and opening of the Jeanne B. McCoy Community Center for the Arts, which opened in 2008. Prior to that, he oversaw the design, building and opening of the Schermerhorn Symphony Center in Nashville, Tenn. He has managed a number of performing arts facilities in Tennesee, Dallas and New York State in a career that spans nearly 35 years.
