After obtaining a masters degree in conducting at the Conservatoire de Genève with the highest distinction with Prof. Laurent Gay and further perfecting his conducting skills at several master classes (Bernard Haitink (2008), Jesus Lopez Cobos (2009), David Zinman (2010)), Domingo is increasingly gaining international recognition. He also maintains close ties with his native Venezuela where he is a regular guest conductor within El Sistema.
