“We have been thrilled to collaborate with Ray and Vivian Chew in recent years, working together to create a range of unforgettable concerts at Carnegie Hall. These have included major musical events at the heart of the Hall’s 2009 Honor festival, with artists spanning blues, jazz, rhythm and blues, soul and beyond as well as joyous one-night-only events at Carnegie Hall celebrating the music of Motown and the best of gospel. In each case, Ray and Vivian have been a fantastic team and wonderful partners. Their knowledge of the finest artists performing today, commitment to musical excellence, creativity, and collaborative spirit have resulted in performances that have attracted music lovers from near and far. These events have also helped Carnegie Hall ensure that its concert line-up continues to be reflective of the whole community that it serves.”  

Clive Gillinson, Executive & Artistic Director of Carnegie Hall 

“Ray and Vivian Chew are the dream team. They are both consumate professionals and great to work with. For many years Ray Chew served as the Music Director for “It’s Showtime at the Apollo” television show as well as the theater’s weekly Amateur Night show. More recently, he served as Music Director for a majority of the Apollo’s large-scale special events. Not only is Ray talented musically, but he and Vivian are extremely adept at working with artists from all music genres. I think between the two of them, they pretty much worked with everyone!”

–  Jonelle Procope, President and CEO of Apollo Theater 

“I have worked with Vivian and Ray on projects ranging from televised properties like Showtime at the Apollo and the NAACP Image Awards to high end concerts and galas of all types. The common thread always includes respect for the client, trust of the artists and most importantly a commitment to professionalism and excellence. Chew Entertainment is always my first choice.”

–  David D. Rodriguez, Executive Producer of New Jersey Performing Arts Center
