The Music SA team is incredibly excited to announce that well-respected cultural and creative leader, Christine Schloithe, will be joining our not-for-profit as our new Chief Executive Officer

We are very thrilled to welcome the new addition to our passionate not-for-profit workplace. Her long list of professional history is a great asset to our team. Christine is a highly accomplished multi-industry professional with local, national, and international experience across organisational management, arts and cultural programming, producing, touring, festival management and stakeholder engagement. She has worked extensively across the performing arts, music, festivals/major events, and cultural heritage with post-graduate qualifications in Cultural Tourism. We are very excited to utilise her finely honed skills in facilitating creative outcomes, supporting artists and makers, and developing vital stakeholder and partner relationships. 

Christine will be officially joining our team from the 23rd of May 2022, and is looking forward to working alongside Music SA’s Chair, John Glenn, the Board, and staff to set a new strategic plan and road map for the next few years that will build, activate, and strengthen South Australia’s contemporary music sector both within the context of COVID, and looking forward to the future of South Australian music. 

“I’m excited to be joining Music SA at this time of change and rebuilding. COVID-19 has been devastating for arts and culture, live music, events, festivals and tourism, and we can now start to rebuild and take advantage of new opportunities,” says Christine.

Music SA Chair, John Glenn adds:

“Christine is an outstanding appointment for us as our new CEO and will bring together a fresh and united Board and an invigorated office working with a new State Government to rejuvenate the Live Music Industry that has been traumatised by the pandemic.”

“…The experience that Christine brings to the organisation in change management and organisational growth is exactly what we need right now, and I am very excited to see where the next few years will lead us.”

Music SA will soon announce additional new appointments to the Board as they embark on refocused strategies and goals and consider all opportunities to work with the live music industry toward a fresh outlook as the COVID -19 dust starts to settle.
