About the artist: Native Clevelander Patrick Macoska has lived in Michigan until recently, where he had careers in architecture and church music. He studied carillon at the University of Michigan and played his GCNA (Guild of Carillonneurs in North America) advancement recital in 1997 at the University of Kansas. Patrick has been active in the Guild, serving two terms on the Board of Directors and currently serving as Chairperson of the Examinations Committee. He has given carillon concerts throughout the U.S. and Canada, most recently playing guest recitals at the Peace Tower on Parliament Hill in Ottawa and at L’Oratoire St. Joseph in Montreal. Until his move back to Cleveland, he played weekly recitals on the two carillons at the University of Michigan as well as on the 51-bell Paccard carillon at St. Mary’s of Redford Church in Detroit where he served as director of music. He is happy to be back in his home town and looks forward to becoming involved in the Cleveland carillon scene!
