Associate Director and Violinist

Associate Director and Violinist

Canadian-American violinist and composer Patrick Conlon has been highly praised for both his artistry as a composer and his playing as concertmaster, chamber musician, and soloist. A genre-busting musician in every sense of the word, Patrick Conlon's compositions have been described as "bridging the gap between classical music's ivory tower intellectualism and popular music's visceral sensualism." As a composer and violinist he has performed and written for the Los Angeles New Music Ensemble, Scissortail Productions, Tulsa Philharmonic, Symphony of Northwest Arkansas, OKMove, the New Century Ensemble, the Paul Bailey Ensemble, AMP, SoundCat, More Than Music, and many others. In addition to his classical compositions, his extensive experience recording and orchestrating for popular music can be seen in his collaborations with Other Lives, Princeton, Good King Friday, Wu Tang Clan Member MoeRoc, Andy Maag, and Phat Salmon.
