Philip Chiu's programming is, above all else, entertaining and inspiring for audiences. This often means creating thematic and custom-tailored shows that suit audiences’ and presenters’ needs. "Of Church & State", combines solo piano repertoire and videos, creating a beautiful and accessible way for audiences to experience new music in a comfortable familiar setting.
One of Philip Chiu's defining features as a performer is his ability to communicate with audiences. He puts effort, time, and heart, into any pre-concert, in-concert, post-concert speaking, believing that the right combination of words/humour/information will allow any audience member (new, seasoned, raw, experienced) to enjoy any piece of classical music.
