Winner of the 2015-2016 Prix Goyer, Canada’s largest prize for an emerging artist in classical music, Philip Chiu is more than a summation of technical and musical abilities. He has become one of Canada’s leading musicians through his infectious love of music and his passion for communication and collaboration. Lauded for the brilliance, colour and sensitivity of his playing, he is particularly noted for his ability to connect with audiences on and off-stage.
An exceedingly sociable pianist, Philip concertizes extensively as soloist and as one of Canada’s most sought-after chamber musicians. He has appeared in recitals with leading musicians of the world stage.
