He has performed as a soloist with many orchestras, and given recitals and presented master classes throughout the United States. He also has performed at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall and at Merkin Concert Hall in New York, and in Tokyo.

A versatile musician, Pattin also is an accomplished organist, composer and arranger. He received a bachelor’s degree in music from UT and a master’s degree in music from the University of Michigan.

The Toledo Piano Teachers Association assists with The University of Toledo Dorothy MacKenzie Price Piano Series. The association provides students for the master class, publicity for the class and concert, and refreshments for the reception in the lobby following the concert.
