During the period from 1944 to 1947, Victor attended St. Josephs College in Yorktown, Saskatchewan, and was a member of the school group which consisted of a male and female choir and instrumental group which appeared on CJCX Radio for three years and was the most popular Ukrainian show on the air at the time.

la 1955 Victor Pasowisty won the Canadian Old Time Fiddling Championship at Shelburne, Ontario, and is the only contestant in the history of the contest to be a finalist in this popular annual event five times.

When the popular Television program Country Hoedown began several years ago, Victor was selected as the special guest for the first two shows and was also invited to the Ottawa Exhibition the same year to perform his old time fiddling artistry. Victor has also won the old time fiddling contest at the Canadian National Exhibition.
