As a concerto soloist, he has recently performed Shostakovich’s second piano concerto with Worthing Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Dominic Grier to great critical acclaim. In 2015, he performed for HRH Princess Alexandra during her visit at the Queen Alexandra’s House. In Hong Kong, his performance has been broadcasted on the Radio Television Hong Kong.

Chi-Hoi graduated from the Royal College of Music in 2016 with a Bachelor of Music with first class honours, supported by a Croucher Foundation Hong Kong Award. An RCM Award Holder supported by a Hilary Fabian Award and a Gordon Calway Stone Memorial Award, he is currently pursuing a Master of Music degree studying with Gordon Fergus-Thompson and Leon McCawley.
