Ivan Ilić started music studies at age 6 and gave his recital debut at 11. He went on to take degrees in music and mathematics at the University of California, Berkeley. After capturing all of Berkeley’s music awards, including First Prize in the Concerto Competition, an Eisner Prize, First Prize in the Senior Recital Competition, and a Mary J. Nunes travel grant to the Aspen Festival, he left for Paris with a Hertz Traveling Fellowship from the University.
A few months later Ivan was admitted to the esteemed Conservatoire Supérieur de Paris, where he took a Premier Prix (First Prize) in piano performance, followed by a Diplôme à l’Unanimité and a Diplôme Supérieur from the École Normale de Musique in Paris. At age 20 he launched a solo recital career that has taken him to Belgium, Ireland, Serbia, the Czech Republic, America, and throughout France and the United Kingdom.
Ivan’s playing is often broadcast on television and radio stations in America, the United Kingdom, France, Ireland and Serbia.
