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, Patrick has written for and collaborated with such diverse groups as the Los Angeles New Music Ensemble, Arkansas Symphony, Fort Smith Symphony, Trio Encantado, More than Music, Other Lives, Princeton, Good King Friday, Soundcat Productions, Puntastic Productions, and Scissortail Productions, among many others. He is the principal second violinist for the Fort Smith Symphony, performs regularly with the Lawton Philharmonic, Tulsa Symphony, and Oklahoma City Philharmonic, and was a featured extra musician in the film I Can Only Imagine. Patrick is a voting member of the Recording Academy (GRAMMYs), and his work is featured on the Naxos, Centaur, Hit City U.S.A., Onyx Lane Records, and TBD Records labels.
