Christine Pan (she/they) is a Sydney-based composer known for her versatility in style and malleability in form. Her passion for powerful storytelling through music spans into various areas of gaming, science, healthcare, film and theatre.

Pan's compositions have been featured by WASO, Ensemble Offspring, Goldner Quartet, Musica Viva as well as ABC Classic, and has showcased her works throughout Europe and the U.S. She has been shortlisted in renowned competitions including Kaleidoscope and the Matt Wither's Composition Competition.

Pan started her career as game music composer with No Moss Studios while she was completing her undergraduate study in Composition at Sydney Conservatorium of Music. During the pandemic, she was a resident composer for LiverpoolPalliative Care Unit writing music for patients and staff and has contributed to research by University of Wollongong and LGBTIQ+ Health Australia in this area.

Interested in multi-sensory concert experiences, she has also curated her concert of solo chamber works inspired and paired with five different types of tea. The series has since developed into Tea Break, series of Concerts in Moana Hall, WA in collaboration with Tenth Muse Initiative for Fringe World 2022 and won the best music award category. Orchestra Victoria performed her musical adaptation of the trans picture book, Introducing Teddy, as part of Midsumma Festival Season 2022 and 2023 in both metropolitan and regional Victoria, and most recently, as part of ChillOut festival in 2024.

Pan has been involved in more than eight theatre productions since delving into theatre in 2022. Christine won the Best Sound Design and Composition of an Independent Theatre Production Sydney Theatre award for Moon Rabbit Rising and made her musical directorial debut for The Village at Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre in collaboration with Q Theatre.

Melbourne Symphony Orchestra just premiered a newly commissioned work on Jan 30th 2024 as part of the Cybec Music and Ideas program. She is excited to be a part of ANAM Set this year to work with Brisbane-born clarinettist Dario Scalabrini. Pan also leads her own piano quintet, Somnus Quintet, and frequently performs at international conventions.

Pan is still currently working in theatre and with SLHD and Arterie to develop more music residencies at hospitals.
