Personal Statement

David Phillips is an accomplished concert pianist with an extensive performance and teaching record. His deft interpretations of classical composers such as Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert have garnered him wide acclaim and invitations to appear with notable institutions such as The Dubrovnik Symphony, The London Philharmonic, The San Antonio Symphony, The Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and The St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra. He also gave a Carnegie Hall debut on February 20, 2007 in New York City.

Phillips’ mastery of the piano has also been noted by the U.S. Department of State, when its Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs invited him to appear on two tours — to Armenia and Croatia. On these tours Phillips appeared as a soloist with both the Armenian Philharmonic and the Dubrovnik Symphony, and he led master classes at the Sayat Nova Music Academy and the Zagreb Conservatory.

Recently Phillips performed on the Rite of Spring Great Performers Concert series in New York City. He has also given solo recitals at the Old First Concert Series in San Francisco, the Key West Pops Orchestra in Florida, The Donnell Library Concert Series, and the Trinity Concert Series, both in New York City.
