Founder and Artistic Director of the Quadra Island Festival of Chamber Music, Philip has a solo album of tango music, Bragatissimo, that has been broadcasted around the world, including the NPR-USA and CBC. He collaborated on and composed the theme music to Charlie the Cello, a children’s book and stage production by author Deborah Nicholson that he performed with the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra.
