We welcome Matthew Boyles from California by way of Philadelphia. He has performed around the world and, along with Rachel Patrick, has co-founded Musical Flights, a chamber music series in the Sonoma Valley area.

Rachel Patrick has performed as soloist with orchestras across the United States and in Germany, most recently performing the German premier of Tan Dan’s “Hero” Concerto with the composer himself conducting.

Ms. Patrick has been the recipient of both a Suzuki and Friends Chamber Music fellowship and a Starling Chamber Music fellowship. She has also presented chamber music recitals throughout the United States and Europe collaborating with such artists as Allison Eldredge, Christoph Huebner, Eric Kim, Yehonatan Berick and Alex Kerr, among others, and worked with Osvaldo Golijov on a program celebrating his compositions.

Ms. Patrick has served as the concertmaster for numerous orchestras including the Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, University of Michigan Symphony Orchestra, the Arbor Opera Orchestra, Indiana University Chamber Orchestra and as frequent guest concertmaster for the Bloomington Symphony Orchestra and the Hollins Chamber Orchestra, which she joined for a tour to Italy in 2009. Ms. Patrick’s primary concertmaster appointment was with the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival Orchestra in Germany, a post that she held from 2009-2012. With this ensemble, she has participated in extensive tours of North America, Eastern Europe (with concerts in Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic), Spain, Turkey, Denmark and Germany as well as in collaboration with Lang Lang and Herbie Hancock for the internationally broadcast Lang Lang 30th Birthday at the O2 World Arena in Berlin.
