Gregory Lewis


Known for his “sheer commitment to communication” and “wonderful musical personality” (Winnipeg Free Press), violinist Gregory Lewis has established himself as one of central Canada’s most prominent rising musicians. Growing up in Thunder Bay, Ontario studying with Olga Medvedeva, Gregory is a graduate of the Royal Conservatory of Music, and is now pursuing an undergraduate degree in Violin Performance at the University of Manitoba with Dr. Oleg Pokhanovski.

Gregory has performed with numerous orchestras across the country, including a solo tour with Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra in April-May 2015, performances with the Thunder Bay and Kitchener-Waterloo symphonies, and frequent engagements with Canadian chamber and student orchestras. He is a prize winner of many national and international competitions, including the 2016 Enkor International Piano and Violin Competition, the 2015 Canadian Music Competition National Finals, the 2016 Doris McLellan Competition, and the 2015 American Protégé International Piano and Strings Competition, earning him two recital performances in Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall.

In addition to his solo career, Gregory has held distinguished orchestral positions in several of North America’s top summer festivals, including the 2016 Aspen Music Festival and School, the 2016 Scotia Festival of Music, and the 2015 National Youth Orchestra of Canada, of which he was an Award of Excellence recipient and performed as concert master on their Canadian tour. His studies have allowed him the opportunity to study with many of the world’s top pedagogues and performers, including Midori, James Ehnes, Giora Schmidt, Paul Kantor, the Pacifica Quartet, and the Gryphon Trio.

An avid chamber musician, Gregory is a founding member of the Chroma Quartet, a student ensemble formed in 2014. Quickly gaining a reputation as Manitoba’s premier student chamber group, the Chroma Quartet frequently performs both in recital and freelance, and was selected to represent Manitoba at the 2016 Canadian Music Competition National Finals. Aside from violin, Gregory enjoys reading, hiking, fishing, and time spent with family and friends.
