Based in the Mid-Atlantic area, Patrick has performed over 20 times each for the Baltimore Orioles and the Washington Capitals.
Patrick Mason has been a performer of anthem, classical and theatre repertoire since the 1990s. Although he is best known for his signature anthem performances for major sporting events, he has performed as a featured soloist as well with many choral groups and symphonies in Hawaii, Colorado and Maryland. In addition to singing, Patrick also plays piano and guitar and is on the worship team of Bay Area Community Church in Annapolis.
Trained as a classical lyric tenor since the 1990s, Patrick has also performed as a featured tenor soloist with the Honolulu Symphony and many other regional symphonies in Hawaii, Colorado and Maryland.
Some of the major works that Patrick has performed as a featured soloist include the following:
Carmina Burana (Orff)
Christmas Oratorio (Saint-Säens)
Missa Sancti Nicolai (Haydn)
Mass in G (Schubert)
Coronation Mass in C (Mozart)
Patrick currently performs as a featured soloist with the Easton Choral Arts Society (Easton, MD), and with the Chesapeake Chorale (Bowie, MD).
Patrick Mason has long been a fan and team favorite performer of anthem repertoire. This has been a result of his personal dedication not only to performance excellence, but also his commitment to perform the anthem in a traditional and respectful fashion, his goal to establish an atmosphere of reverence and honor, his flexibility and dependability, and his view of each performance opportunity as a privilege and honor.
Patrick has mentored other performers over the years, and the first tenet he imparts to them is that 'it is always about the event, and not about you'. Patrick routinely employs this philosophy during his performances, always willing to change timing, rendition, even dress as asked, in order to provide a customized product for each event and organization that he performs for.
