Pat Doane

Since moving to New Haven in 2017, Patrick has played in the New Haven Symphony and Hartford Symphony, has served as concertmaster, appeared as soloist with orchestra, and has performed in recitals throughout the northeast. Patrick received his Bachelors and Masters degrees from Juilliard and is completing his doctorate at The Graduate Center, CUNY in New York City. Patrick has been described as a “compelling violinist” by the New York Times. The New Haven Independent writes, “His virtuosic playing and obvious command of his instrument was always in service of grand, thrilling musical gestures.” His recent solo and chamber performances include recitals throughout the northeast United States, concerto appearances with The Orchestra of the Bronx, and radio broadcasts on WMNR Fine Arts Radio. A DMA candidate at CUNY Graduate Center, Patrick is writing on Galina Ustvolskaya’s works for violin and piano. Patrick’s students range from Suzuki to graduate level. His private students have gone on to graduate study violin at NYU and Mannes. A Suzuki certified teacher, his younger students have gone on to study at Walnut Hill School and NEC preparatory division. Patrick enjoys long runs and cooking spicy food.
