His music has been featured at festivals and venues throughout the United States and internationally including Spoleto Festival USA, June in Buffalo, the Santa Fe New Music Festival, Interlochen Center for the Arts, Berklee College of Music, Tenri Cultural Institute, Bavarian Academy of Music in Munich, and Nuremberg Museum of Contemporary Art. He is variously active as an explicator of music to a wide range of listeners. He has provided program notes for numerous concert series: most prolifically for Music@Menlo, a chamber music festival and institute in Silicon Valley for which he also serves as artistic administrator. In this latter capacity, he has led a variety of pre-concert discussion events; designed outreach presentations for middle and high school students; and authored, narrated, and produced the widely acclaimed AudioNotes series of listener’s guides to the chamber music literature. His writing credits also include New York City Opera’s musical introduction to Emmanuel Chabrier’s L’Étoile, a live presentation for young listeners featuring full orchestra and soloists. Mr. Castillo has been a guest lecturer at Fordham University, the Chamber Music Festival of the Bluegrass in Kentucky, ChamberFest Cleveland, and String Theory at the Hunter in Chattanooga, Tennessee. In 2010, he was appointed director of artistic planning by the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra. Picked by the Boston Globe as one of the Superior Pianists of the year, “who appears to excel in everything,” pianist Gloria Chien made her orchestral debut at the age of 16 with the Boston Symphony Orchestra.

She has presented recitals at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Jordan Hall, Harvard Musical Association, Caramoor Musical Festival, Verbier Musical Festival, Salle Cortot in Paris, and the National Concert Hall in Taiwan.
