About the Artists
Canadian violinist Gregory Lewis has performed extensively across North America and Europe as a solo, chamber, and orchestral musician. Lewis made his solo Carnegie Hall debut in 2015 as First Prize Winner of the American Protégé International Piano & Strings Competition, and has also received First Prize in the Canadian National Music Festival, as well as Second Prize in the Doris McLellan Competition and the Canadian Music Competition National Finals.
Growing up in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Lewis completed his ARCT Diploma in Violin Performance from the Royal Conservatory of Music, under the instruction of Olga Medvedeva. He is a graduate of the University of Manitoba and Yale University, where he studied with Oleg Pokhanovski, Chris Anstey, and Ani Kavafian. He is currently pursuing an Artist Diploma at the Colburn Conservatory of Music as a student of Martin Beaver.
Carter Johnson began the study of piano at age five with Shelley Roberts (with whom he studied for twelve years), continued studies with Michelle Mares, and then with Mark Anderson at the University of British Columbia, where he received a Bachelor of Music in piano performance. His areas of special interest include the music of J.S. Bach, Brahms, Schumann, contemporary music, and art song (recently, he performed the complete song repertoire of Duparc).
In addition to his musical career, Johnson is an accomplished actor and speaker: he holds his ATCL with Distinction in Speech and Drama from Trinity College London and has won many awards for his performances of Shakespeare—combining this experience with his passion for educating audiences, his discussions on music have become a highlight of his recitals for many concertgoers.
Johnson lives with his wife Hannah and their sons Preston and Ambrose in New York City where he is active as a soloist, collaborator, and teacher. He is currently pursuing a Master of Music degree at the Juilliard School, studying with Joseph Kalichstein and Matti Raekallio.
