Victor Provost is widely regarded as one of the world’s leading voices on the unique, and often misunderstood, steel pan (or steel drum). Through appearances at concert halls, clubs, and stages throughout the world, he has been meticulously developing a reputation as a dazzling soloist, crafting an improvisational voice and style to be reckoned with. With a strong foundation in bebop, a contemporary sensibility, and deep roots in Caribbean music, he works in countless genres and musical styles. Heralded as “Jazz Percussionist of the Year” by Washington City Paper five years running, he is truly a local treasure with global appeal.
- An educator as well as a musician, Provost serves as Adjunct Professor of Music at George Mason University and conducts residencies and master classes throughout the United States and the Caribbean.
- In addition to leading his own group, Provost tours with NEA Jazz Master Paquito D’Rivera.
- Provost is also a member of the Grammy Award-winning Afro Bop Alliance.
