Starting the piano at the age of nine, it was only three years later that Dominic Chamot was accepted into the class of Sheila Arnold in the Pre-College division of the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz, Cologne, Germany. In 2014 he began studies with Claudio Martínez Mehner at the University of Music in Basel, subsequently completing his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees (Specialized Performance–Soloist). He has also participated in masterclasses with renowned professors Ferenc Rados, Matti Raekallio and Dimitri Bashkirov.

Dominic has played throughout Europe in such hallowed halls as the Berlin and Cologne Philharmonies and Vienna’s Musikverein, but also in New York’s Steinway Hall as part of the Classic Bridge Festival. He has collaborated with orchestras including the WDR Symphony Orchestra Cologne, ORF Symphony Orchestra Vienna, Basel Symphony Orchestra and the St Petersburg Chamber Orchestra with conductors such as Jukka-Pekka Saraste, Cornelius Meister and Joseph Bastian.

Dominic is an avid chamber musician and accompanist: he has been invited to prestigious European chamber music festivals, and worked as an accompanist and musician-actor for Theater Basel.
