Quadra Cultural Events
Classical Celebration – Philip Chiu

Forty years ago Hilda van Orden had the dream of bringing regular professional entertainment to Quadra Island that was accessible, affordable and enjoyable. Her vision resulted in the creation of what is now known as Quadra Cultural Events.

On Saturday, March 3 at 7:30 at the QCC, please join us to celebrate those 40 fabulous years as Quadra Cultural Events presents classical pianist Philip Chiu____. This is our last concert for the 2017/2018 series.
More than a summation of technical and musical abilities, pianist Philip Chiu 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 one of Canada’s most sought-after chamber musicians.
Dedicated to elevating the standard and art of collaborative piano, Philip is the creator and director of the new Collaborative Piano Program at the Domaine Forget International Festival and Academy . He is an acclaimed accompanist/coach based at McGill University, has been an invited professor-accompanist for the Conservatoire de musique de Montreal, and regularly accompanies at l’Universite de Montreal. He travels regularly across Canada and the U.S. to accompany for national and international competitions.
Advance tickets are available for $17 at Works of H’Art in Heriot Bay, Inspirations in Q Cove, The Music Plant in Campbell River and online at Tidemark Theatre. Tickets are also available at the door for $20.
