Philippa's reputation as a gifted child grew more and more as she grew up. During the fall of 1937, Philippa was invited by Mother Stevens, director of the prestigious Pius X School of Liturgical Music at the College of the Sacred Heart, to play for her. During the same year, Philippa won the top prize from the New York Philharmonic's Young People's Society Concert Series at Carnegie Hall. For eight consecutive years, she was placed on the National Piano Teachers Guild Honor Roll. Philippa also began to travel and perform for many people. Philippa's days continued to be carefully regimented and choreographed.
