Fresh off their recent wins at the 2023 Juno Awards, pianist Philip Chiu and violinist Chloé Chabanole join cellist Cameron Crozman in a springtime concert celebrating the piano trio in all its forms.
In a ceremony earlier this month, Halifax’s Cecilia Concerts past musician-in-residence, pianist Philip Chiu, took home the Juno Award in the classical album of the year (solo artist) category for his album Fables. At the same time, double Juno Award nominee Chloé Chabanole won in the classical album of the year (large ensemble) category for the album Viola Borealis in her role as concertmaster of Montreal’s Orchestre de l’Agora.
Together for their upcoming concert in Halifax on April 15 at The Stage at St. Andrews, Chiu and Chabanole are joined by cellist Cameron Crozman. The three will perform a program celebrating the piano trio in all its forms.
Anchored by a shared artistic vision, the three artists have imagined a bold program exploring the nobility and playfulness of Joseph Haydn and his Piano Trio No. 43 in C major, the dark and dramatic sounds of Johannes Brahms’ Piano Trio No. 3 in C minor, and the colourful and energetic music of Pulitzer Prize and three-time Grammy Award-winning American composer Jennifer Higdon and her Piano Trio No. 1.
“Philip Chiu’s many collaborations with Cecilia Concerts have been nothing short of exceptional, showcasing his remarkable talents and highlighting his innate ability to connect with audiences through music,” says Cecilia Concerts executive director Gregory Morris. “We are delighted to be welcoming Philip back again in April, this time as a Juno Award-winner, along with fellow Juno winner Chloé Chabanole on violin and cellist Cameron Crozman.”
