Philip Chidell began studying the violin aged six. Two years later, he was offered a place at Chetham's School of Music, at the time becoming their youngest pupil.
Philip was soon performing around the UK, and at 13 played for the first time as a soloist with an orchestra. He has performed as a member of various ensembles and orchestras, in venues including Manchester Cathedral, Chester Cathedral, the Bridgewater Hall, the Royal Festival Hall and Windsor Castle.
He continues to travel the country, playing regularly at concerts and also busking in a variety of cities.
He plays a violin made in 1750 by German luthier Sebastian Klotz, as pictured.
In addition to music, Philip is a keen filmmaker, and won a BBC film competition with his short film, Pong.
