Patrick was a student of Donald Scotts in Melbourne at the Victorian College of the Arts and then Dr Felix Andrievsky at the Royal College of Music in London. As a chamber player he was also a Leverhulme Fellow at the Royal Academy of Music and a Junior Fellow at the Royal College.

Patrick's April 2024 recital album release, in partnership with pianist, Martin Cousin,  The Golden Age of Hollywood: Concert works for Violin and Piano, featured concert works by icons of American film, including world premiere recordings of works by Bernard Herrmann, Jerome Meross and Heinz Roemheld and was greeted with universal critical acclaim. His May 2024 Australian recital tour, featuring music from the album and the premiere of his own violin and piano arrangement of Saint-Saëns' 1908 film score, L'ASSASSINAT DU DUC DE GUISE,  was received with exceptional warmth and enthusiasm by audiences, and included the world premiere performance of Pastoral (Twilight), by Herrmann.

 

As guest concertmaster, he has toured and recorded with major orchestras including the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, the Liverpool Philharmonic, the Australian World Orchestra, the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and the Opera Australia Orchestra.

 

As a studio musician, Patrick has recorded for film scores with combined box office takings of over thirteen billion US dollars, including many of the biggest blockbusters of recent decades, including THE LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy, the live-action remake of Disney’s, THE LITTLE MERMAID, GODZILLA VS KONG and WONDER WOMAN 1984 as well as television series such as CALL THE MIDWIFE and DOWTON ABBEY.
