Aidan Mikdad has received the Tabor Foundation Piano Award from the Verbier Festival as a recognition of his potential and as an investment in his promise. Last Summer, the Verbier Festival Academy has invited him to participate as student-in-residence. This is an exceptional honour and testifies to the high level of playing Aidan has attained at such a young age. The Academy is part of the Verbier Festival. Aidan’s participation included masterclasses in Piano with Klaus Hellwig and Sergei Babayan, and a solo performance. In addition, he followed chamber music masterclasses with Pamela Frank and Gábor Takács-Nagy.

Recently Aidan has made his recital debut in Italy at Festival di Musica da Camera Armonie della Sera. See links below for the live registration of the concert:
