Rachel Pilard

Rachel has fifteen years of experience working in the music industry varying from artist management, music recording, event management and marketing. Having spent several years working for Dame Kiri's management company and touring extensively with her, Rachel was delighted to be invited to join the Kiri Te Kanawa Foundation seven years ago. This has coincided with a move to the Royal Academy of Music supporting the next generation of young artists as External Bookings Manager where she remained for six years. Following a recent move to Canterbury in Kent she is now the Marketing Manager for Kent's international arts festival the Canterbury Festival.
