Mihran Kalaydjian at the Piano 

About Mihran


Mihran Kalaydjian is an award-winning solo pianist and composer. At an early age he began his insatiable passion to master the piano. During those beginning years in Jerusalem, he shared his family’s love of music and tradition. Mihran had no formal training in music even though his parents were insistent he have lessons. He played spontaneously from pure instinct.

His talent progressed to an honorable status, a Gold Medalist: Pianist, Music & Composer in Four International Piano Competitions

My intention is toward cultivating a greater sense of the present moment, and inviting the listener to open more fully to his or her experience.


There has always been a recognized trinity between the mind, the body and the therapeutic qualities of Music. And the piano, specifically, has been a long-recognized source of remedy for those seeking escape and creative expression. But recent years have also offered a wealth of scientific studies that demonstrate our instincts have always been correct: playing the piano offers proven benefits – from physical and intellectual to social and emotional – to people of all ages.

Mihran has many loves aside from the piano. He loves the outdoors, comedy, barbeques, reading and traveling. In college he worked in the beer industry and in restaurants, developing skills that carried over into his adult life. Today he has a successful business that provides visionary leadership and management oversight of the sales, marketing and revenue strategies for Classic Hotels and Resorts.

Mihran Kalaydjian Hospitality Consulting Firm

The five items he can’t live without: Everything, infinity, wanton boredom, limitless limits, and change.


Mihran’s music came to Before Sundown’s Welcome Page on April 8th 2016. He left a comment about the Sunset/Sunrise Photo Gallery.

This is like a crystal piano melody, especially viewing the images…

He left a video, a beautiful melody, Ani Beautiful that set a magnificent backdrop image…for the sunset and sunrises’s brilliance.

Visit his website, and prepare to be at peace in Mihran’s World of Music

Enjoy the Welcome Page Sunrise/Sunset Gallery

      Thanks so much, Donna! Sharukh has an incredible travel blog with unique photos. Love to collect sunsets. In August I’ll future Damyanti Biswas and a Malaysian sunset. September will feature the Robinson brothers (my sons) and their sunsets. Have a good rest during your “blog leave.” Good thoughts for better health! 💛 Christine Elizabeth (CE)

      Ahmed, your comment is the 300th one on the Welcome Page! That’s exciting! I need to think of a gift for you! Do you have a sunset or sunrise that I could feature for the monthly featured sunset/mini-bio post? Perhaps for September or October? No pressure, just a thought! Not certain if you would have any interest. 💛 Christine (Elizabeth)
