David McCarroll, violin & Roy Bogas, piano - presented by Gualala Arts Chamber Music Series
IndieLONDON described Starcross Community's very own David McCarroll as "a great talent" who plays "with an impressive depth of feeling." He has performed as a soloist with many orchestras including the London Mozart Players and the Yehudi Menuhin School Orchestra and has appeared in halls throughout the U.K. including Wigmore Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Purcell Room, St. Johns, Smith Square, and Fairfield Halls.
Silver medalist at the 2007 Klein International Competition and recipient of the 2010 Gunther Schuller Medal, he has received numerous prizes and awards and given performances in Switzerland, Tunisia, Thailand, England, Wales, Scotland, France, Germany, Italy, New Zealand, Panama, El Salvador, Argentina, Chile, Israel, and throughout the United States.
David began studying the violin with Helen Payne Sloat in Santa Rosa at the age of 4. At 8, he studied in Berkeley with Anne Crowden. When David was 13, he received an invitation to join an international group of 60 young music students at the Yehudi Menuhin School outside London where he studied with Simon Fischer. David continued his studies with Donald Weilerstein and Miriam Fried at New England Conservatory of Music in Boston and with Antje Weithaas in the Konzertexamen program at the Hanns Eisler Academy in Berlin.
Pianist Roy Bogas received his training in New York and at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. He made his debut with the San Francisco Symphony at age 14, and at age 19 he became the accompanist to the famous violinist Yehudi Menuhin, playing over a hundred concerts with him throughout North and South America. He has also played with Joseph Szigeti and many other well-known artists. In 1962 he was a prizewinner at the second Tchaikovski Competition in Moscow. He has performed as soloist with virtually every orchestra in Northern California and with many other orchestras in this country and abroad.
Mr. Bogas is Professor of Music at Holy Names University in Oakland, and is also Principal Solo Pianist for the San Francisco Ballet. An active chamber musician, he is the founder and director of the MasterGuild Series of chamber music concerts at Holy Names. He has led the Gualala July Chamber Music Weekends since 2003. Roy Bogas is, without a doubt, Gualala's favorite classical musician.
