About Frederic Chiu's Friends Club (FCXFC)

In 2020, the cancellation of all my concerts forced me to interact differently in the world and, like everyone, I found innovative ways to interact virtually with my fans, audiences and students. I performed a world-premiere piece, taught students across several countries and performed live-streamed concerts where the audience was able to interact. I discovered a much more personal interaction with those who are important to me and my work, an interaction I would like to continue!
No more waiting years for my next live concert in your area. No more waiting years for the next CD release (what's that?). It is my desire to build an intimate, passionate and engaged community of fans, friends & supporters with a continual flow of ideas and discoveries. Which is what you get when you join Frederic Chiu’s Friends Club (FCXFC) at any tier level.

Below are short descriptions of the 4 facets of my life that we will draw on in our sharing through FCxFC. See the Tier levels above for specific details. No matter the level at which you join my community, I promise you surprises and delights, and also my deepest, most humble gratitude for taking this journey with me.

FC Recording Studio: I am a recording artist, just released my 30th CD through Centaur Records and have recorded many other tracks ready to be released or in my private “vault.” All FCXFC members get early notification of recording releases, free track previews of those releases and custom playlists; Enthusiasts and Champions get free tracks from my “Private Vault.”

FC Masterclass: At Carnegie Mellon University and The Hartt School, I teach students from around the world, and I have given Masterclasses at leading music schools and communities around the world for over 30 years. I also teach my “Deeper Performance Studies” Heart-Mind-Body programs worldwide, to musicians and non-musicians alike, innovative programs that grew out of my own experiences building myself as a concert pianist and that employ unconventional, life-changing techniques. The American Pianist Association offered DPS for years as a reward to their finalists, and these concepts are part of most of my teaching, be it Masterclasses, Workshops, Studio Work, Lessons or Retreats.

FC Performances: I am a concert pianist who has performed for 40+ years in solo recitals, as a soloist with many of the world’s top orchestras and with legendary musicians and friends such as Joshua Bell, in many of the great halls in 40 countries around the world, and in all 50 United States to critical acclaim. I am also a creator and collaborator outside the traditional boundaries, performing with dancers, jazz musicians, storytellers and many others.

FC Inside Look: So much of what one does to be a performing, recording, teaching concert pianist happens behind the scenes. This is the “secret sauce” that many fans, audience members, interviewers ask me about (and ask my wife about!) and are so very curious to know. You might be surprised at what influences come into play, like the role of vegetable gardening, cooking, messing around with new tech, counting my steps for an entire day, practicing in unusual ways (like in the pitch dark at 3AM!) and what kinds of curious exploration one needs to undertake to be ready to perform or record or teach. Pianists tend to be private in these things, saving everything for the big reveal. But, with this FCXFC community I’ve decided to open a window onto this behind-the-scenes life, in ways even I don’t know yet!

I’m looking forward to connecting with you!

Frederic
