Beginning piano lessons at age eleven, Caleb Salizzo was awarded his AMusA soon after. He would then go on to make his concerto debut at the age of fifteen, performing Beethoven’s Third Piano Concerto with the Gold Coast Youth Orchestra. Caleb has since completed his Bachelor of Music, studying piano under Dr Anna Grinberg at the University of Queensland (UQ). He has performed extensively in both solo and chamber settings, with recent highlights including a regional tour with the acclaimed Topology Ensemble, Bangalow Music Festival, and performing at QPAC as part of the Melbourne (now Australian) Digital Concert Hall series. Caleb is currently in his third year of training at the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) with Timothy Young.
Caleb is a member of the Islay Piano Trio, comprised of fellow ANAM musician Daniel Chiou (cello) and ANAM alum Rollin Zhao (violin). As a trio, they have performed alongside the Southern Cross Soloists as part of the Next Gen Artists Program, and competed in the Queensland International Chamber Music Competition. They also performed in a concert series in Brisbane and the Gold Coast.
As an aspiring conductor, Caleb has conducted numerous ensembles around Brisbane in both rehearsal and concert under the guidance of Dr Warwick Potter.
