Gregg Patruno is a lifelong New Yorker, and since 1975 (at age ten) has been an organist for Staten Island’s Church of St. Clare, the largest parish in the Archdiocese of New York (7,200 families). He graduated with multiple honors from Stuyvesant High School, Princeton and Columbia Universities, studied popular and classical piano with Zelig Sokoll and Bertha Mandel, and has worked closely with organists Daniel Palko, George Poppe, Albert Ahlstrom, and Paul Jacobs. In addition to performing as a soloist in Europe, Australia, the US National Academy of Sciences, and in three regional theater tours, Mr. Patruno has earned numerous musical awards (including the highest score in two state-wide piano competitions) and has enjoyed a wide variety of performing, conducting, composing, arranging, recording, promoting, teaching, and adjudicating activities in the New York and Princeton communities (including two major productions with Brooke Shields). Outside of music, he has received top national rankings in mathematics and in investment research, has coached the USA Olympiad Math Team, and has published in mathematics, finance, and Italian-American genealogy. He currently resides in Manhattan’s Murray Hill neighborhood with a home Wurlitzer III/49d, and has become one of New York’s most avid supporters of organ concerts, competitions, cinemas, classes, camps, conventions, and cyberlinks.
