Berklee's 2008 Free Summer Concert Series Pat Carroll Quartet
Pat Carroll, a saxophonist from Pleasanton, California, has been focused on music since age 12, when he began studying with noted San Francisco musician Dann Zinn. In his junior year of high school, Carroll was awarded the Jimmy Lion’s scholarship at the 2004 Monterey Jazz Festival. In 2005, he was commissioned to write and perform original music as a member of the SFJAZZ Young Composers Project, a group that rehearsed with the likes of Ravi Coltrane, Miguel Zenon, Vijay Iyer, and Maria Schneider. Currently in his final year at Berklee, Carroll has studied with Hal Crook, Ralph Peterson, and Joe Lovano.
