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. In a recent review, The New Haven Independent writes, “His virtuosic playing and obvious command of his instrument was always in service of grand, thrilling musical gestures.” Of his performance of a Paganini Caprice, “Doane made the piece feel effortless, like flying, swooping, soaring, pirouetting.” 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.
Patrick is a DMA candidate at CUNY Graduate Center, where he is writing a performance analysis of Galina Ustvolskaya’s works for violin and piano. He has studied violin with Sally Thomas, Naoko Tanaka, Lara Lev, Daniel Phillips, and Baroque violin with Robert Mealy and his chamber coaches include Sylvia Rosenberg, Rolph Schulte, and Ursula Oppens.
He is the recipient of scholarship awards from Juilliard, CUNY Graduate Center, The Banff Centre, Aspen School of Music, and The Meadowmount School of Music. As a composer, Patrick has composed works for the Spelaeus Quartet, The Portland String Quartet, and for solo violin. He has made several arrangements for The Noel Pointer Foundation and for Music Haven. An avid reader and listener of all sorts of music, Patrick enjoys doing headstands, lake swims, and cooking spicy food.
