About Us

Phillips Artist Management Foundation

The Foundation is a 501c3 nonprofit organization. As music cultural ambassadors, we collaborate with national and international treasures as well as seasoned artists and will be presenting the “Music Ambassadors Series” at locations such as Carnegie Hall Stern Auditorium and St. Francis Auditorium in Santa Fe, New Mexico, which will be launched in the Fall of 2019.

We collaborate with non-profit foundations and organizations for mentoring and masterclasses worldwide. In addition, we partner with charitable causes to assist with fundraising for research and relief for disease and natural disasters internationally through our music ambassadors series and our international masterclass series. We hope to change our world by inspiring others, leading the way with this visionary approach.

Testimonials

"Pianist David Phillips joined Soprano Aimee Puentes in Non temer and was the soloist in Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 27 in B-flat – his last, dating from 1791. Phillips showed himself to be a stylish Mozartean with a firm, clear touch and a lyrical sense of line. He is a poet in the purest sense of the word. His timekeeping was impeccable; a marvelous pairing with Michael Morgan's steady conducting."

-Mike Greenberg, Express-News Senior Critic San Anotonio Express News

“We have, however, heard something rather like the Piano Concerto in F before, namely just unscrolled every anything Gershwin put together for an orchestra. But Soloist David Phillips is not like any pianist on this planet. From an impeccable memory every inscrutable note through his curling fingers. Phillips is super-sensitive performer blessed with an endearing tendency. ( The late Glenn Gould’s was to hum through his performances; others called it groaning.) Phillips’is to contort his mug as if deflecting the tantalizing tension between each note. Never seen anything quite like it. A night of Gershwin was a night of ice on fire and we loved it.
