Piano & Organ Lessons
Giving his Carnegie Hall debut at age 17, Patrick Kreeger has established himself as one of the leading musicians of his generation. Praised by The Philadelphia Inquirer for his “elegantly detailed phrasing,” as well as having “a lot to offer beyond the organ console,” he maintains a versatile career as a pianist, organist, and choral conductor.
Patrick has performed in many distinguished venues around the world, including: Benaroya Hall (Seattle, WA), Meymandi Symphony Hall (Raleigh, NC), Verizon Hall (Philadelphia, PA), Bulgaria Hall (Sofia, Bulgaria), Cook Hall (St. John’s, Newfoundland), Peterborough Cathedral (U. K.), Musée d’Augustins (Toulouse, France), Kunsten Museum (Aalborg, Denmark), as well as numerous other venues in the U. S., U. K., France, Italy, Israel, and Bulgaria. He gave his symphonic debut in April 2008, performing Sergei Rachmaninoff’s first piano concerto with the North Carolina Symphony and has also been guest soloist with the Musica Sacra Chamber Orchestra, Virginia Beach Symphony, Chilliwack Symphony Orchestra, Barton College/Wilson Symphony Orchestra, and the SUNY-Purchase Conservatory Orchestra.
A native of Jacksonville, Florida, Kreeger has pursued higher education at three institutions. At age 18, he was awarded a full-tuition scholarship to attend The Curtis Institute of Music, where he studied organ and piano with Alan Morrison and Susan Starr, respectively. He then received the Robert Baker scholarship to attend Yale University, where he earned his master’s degree and sacred music certificate under Martin Jean. Patrick subsequently was a C. V. Starr Doctoral Fellow at The Juilliard School, where he studied with Paul Jacobs and earned the prestigious Doctor of Musical Arts (DMA) degree. Patrick has served as the Associate Organist at New York City’s historic Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church since 2015. Additionally, he is on the College and Extension faculties at The Juilliard School.
