Noted by La Presse as “...a pianist-painter who turns every musical idea into a beautiful array of colors”, Chiu is lauded for the brilliance, colour and sensitivity of his playing, and is particularly noted for his ability to connect with audiences on and off stage. Inaugural winner of the 2015 Prix Goyer, pianist 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.

Philip Chiu has developed a brand new program for solo piano and multimedia called Of Church & State. Music has been key to the developments of both religion and nationalism. Working closely with the Noncerto group in Montreal, Philip's program pairs solo piano music with stunning videos of Quebec's beautiful churches and delivers a poignant musical commentary on how these two dynamic pillars of Western civilization have influenced composers, musicians, and ultimately ourselves.

Philip concertizes extensively as one of Canada's most sought-after chamber musicians. The highly regarded Crow-Chiu duo, Philip with violinist Jonathan Crow, will be performing in Ontario this season. He has appeared in recitals with leading musicians of the world stage, including James Ehnes, Raphael Wallfisch, Patrice Fontanarosa, Regis Pasquier and Stefan Dohr. He performs regularly with Jonathan Crow, concertmaster of the Toronto Symphony as well as Andrew Wan, co-concertmaster of l’Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal. He tours regularly with premier touring organizations, Jeunesses Musicales Canada, Debut Atlantic, and Prairie Debut.

Philip is extremely grateful for the support of the Sylva Gelber Music Foundation, Canada Council for the Arts and Jeunesses Musicales in his various pursuits. He can be heard/seen on Classical 96.3 FM, Australia’s ABC Radio, CBC Radio, and Radio-Canada.

Philip will be touring "Of Church & State" in March 2018 after his successful showcase at Pacific Contact in 2016.
