As a young cellist, Oliver Aldort has already gained much attention. From his website: www.oliveraldort.com
"Oliver won the 2007 Music Teachers National Association competition as well as the Seattle Young Artists Music Festival competition in 2008 and 2010. He gave his first full solo recital (playing both cello and piano) at the age of seven and has appeared as cello and piano soloist with orchestras around the United States. He has appeared in Carnegie Hall as a member of the New York String Orchestra under Jaime Laredo, and as soloist and chamber musician at the Verbier Festival in Switzerland and the National Arts Centre under Pinchas Zukerman. He has also played solo and chamber recitals at the Miami International Piano Festival, both in their main programming and as part of the "Prodigies and Masters of Tomorrow" series.
He was one of five young musicians from around the world chosen for the BBC Channel 4 program The World's Greatest Musical Prodigies and has been featured on CBC Radio, Komo TV and National Public Radio's From the Top."
