In our 18th Mini Masterclass episode Tanya Bannister (Concert Artists Guild) tells us about finding your 'why' and why it is so important to musicians. Find out how she is helping other musicians to find their why, and hear her journey towards finding hers.



A pianist and 2003 winner of CAG’s competition, Tanya Bannister has made a versatile career immersed in both tradition and entrepreneurship, seeking to create projects that inspire genuine connections between music and the world we live in. In addition to an active performing career, she has developed an interest in institution building in the arts over many years, principally through her work as Artistic Director of Alpenkammermusik, an annual chamber music festival in Austria, and as a founder of RoadMaps, an artistic, humanitarian and cultural venture. She joined CAG as president in July 2018.
