Posted on: June 24, 2019

“Concert Artists Guild’s Senior VP and Director of Artist Management Steve Shaiman is to make his exit at the end of June,” writes Susan Elliott in Friday’s (6/21) Musical America (subscription required). “He has been with the venerable young artists agency for 16 years. He leaves precisely one year after Tanya Bannister was hired to succeed longtime CAG President Richard S. Weinert. Bannister, a pianist, states in the announcement of Shaiman’s departure, ‘As my first manager when I joined the CAG roster in 2003, Steve has been a mentor and great supporter throughout my career. More recently … he has been a great source of knowledge during CAG’s transition’ to her presidency. ‘Steve feels that the time is right for him to move on and seek or new challenges.’ Says Shaiman of his time working with young artists, ‘I cannot imagine a more rewarding experience! It has also been a privilege to work closely with all my presenter colleagues … to help provide our artists with these essential performance opportunities. I am incredibly proud of all that CAG has achieved during my tenure in this leadership role and I looked forward to working with you again in the near future.’ ”
