300 Lonsdale Road, Toronto, ON, Canada

To celebrate the return of in-person concerts, and to express his gratitude for the outstanding support of Toronto Summer Music by its loyal audiences during the pandemic, Philip Chiu is offering concert-goers a unique chance to be an integral part of his musical program on Monday, July 26th at Grace Church on-the-Hill.

In addition to his selection of French masterworks by Maurice Ravel and Claude Debussy, concertgoers are invited to submit a request for a piano piece that they’d like to hear performed live, as well as a small message explaining the importance or meaning of this work to them, or perhaps a dedication. Philip will then make a selection from among the requests for pieces that will make their way into the program.

Due to recital length constraints, shorter piano works are recommended (though excerpts of a larger work may also be requested).

Once you have purchased your ticket for this concert, please submit your musical request to: requests@torontosummermusic.com

The deadline for request submission is Thursday, July 22nd at 12pm EDT.
