Domenic Lewis’s introduction to steelpan came at age 13 during secondary school in his native Barbados, where he fell in love with the instrument. It was during this time that his playing spanned a range of musical genres from classical, to jazz, to gospel, to pop. Since then, he has performed all over the United States and the West Indies, including with the Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra.
Domenic has had the privilege of being one of the first pan majors at George Mason University, under the tutelage of Prof. Victor Provost. Domenic is specializing in Jazz Studies, in addition to PreMedicine, and is entering the final year of his Bachelors program. His studies have allowed him to perform with the nationally renowned Mason Jazz Ensemble. He has taught and arranged for Barbados’ annual national Youth Pan Project workshop, and currently does the same for CAFE (the Cultural Academy For Excellence) in the United States. His aspirations include being a jazz performer, composer, educator and medical practitioner.
