David McCarroll & Roy Bogas
Roy Bogas Almost from the time he could walk, Roy Bogas felt the pull of music - and an uncanny facility for recognizing, and eventually naming, notes. Bogas, who performs for the San Francisco Ballet and other orchestras, can instantly tell whether a given tone is an A or a B flat or a C sharp or any interval between. Known as "perfect" or "absolute" pitch, it's a rare ability in adults, even among professional musicians, who typically have what's known as "relative pitch," or the ability to tell what a note is only when given a starting note as a reference. A student of Ada Clement, Adolph Baller, Hedwig Rosenthal and Rosina Lhevinne, Roy Bogas received his training in New York and at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music.
Bogas received a special prize at the Queen Elisabeth of Belgium International Competition in 1960 and in 1962 he was a prizewinner at the Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow, making his New York and London debuts the following year. In addition to recital work, he has performed as soloist with virtually every orchestra in California, most recently with the North State Symphony under the direction of Kyle Pickett, as well as many other orchestras in this country and abroad, including the Longview, Texas Symphony, the Philharmonic Orchestra of Mexico City, the Radio Orchestra of Ljubjlana, the Belgrade Philharmonic and the Moscow Philharmonic under the direction of Kiril Kondrashin. Mr. Bogas has appeared at many summer music festivals including the Ravinia Festival in Chicago, the Sandpoint, Idaho Festival and the Mendocino and Lake Tahoe Festivals, as well as the Gualala Summer Festival of Music, of which he is the founding director. He is principal solo pianist for San Francisco Ballet and founder of the MasterGuild Series of chamber music at Holy Names University in Oakland, where he is also Professor of Music.
The Prometheus Symphony Orchestra - Community-based Orchestra in Oakland, California, 13 June 2014 [cached]
International award-winning pianist Roy Bogas, who had played a concerto with us, then became our first conductor after Prometheus became an independent community orchestra in 1972. The late Sally Kell, principal cellist with the Oakland Symphony, took the podium for the next few years, and brought us to a new level of musical excellence. She continued the operatic tradition, when we participated in a fully staged production of Poulenc's Dialogue of the Carmelites.

Roy Bogas, Conductor and Pianist
Roy Bogas is a pianist of international renown, debuting with the San Francisco Symphony at age 14 and making his conducting debut with Prometheus in 1976. Roy became the accompanist for violinist Yehudi Menuhin at age 19, playing over a hundred concerts with him throughout North and South America over the years.
A student of Ada Clement, Adolph Baller, Hedwig Rosenthal and Rosina Lhevinne, Roy received piano training in New York and at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music.
"I was a piano soloist with what was then the Merritt Orchestra, conducted by Randy Hunt," Roy remembers. "I had studied conducting, but I wasn't actually a conductor. Well, in fact, Roy had studied conducting in Vienna with Hans Swarowsky (fellow classmates included Zubin Mehta and Claudio Abbado!) and then with Richard Lert, of the Mannheim Opera and longtime music director of the Pasadena Civic Symphony.
"When Randy retired in 1976, he knew I was looking for an orchestra and recommended me. I very much enjoyed working with the Prometheus musicians and developing a group sound. Roy then brought on cellist and conductor Sally Kell, as an assistant conductor. "It was clear just how much she enjoyed conducting and I thought it would be wonderful to give her the chance to take over the orchestra. Which he did-he soon became Music Director at Holy Names University and remained there for many years.
Roy is the founder and director of the MasterGuild Series of professional chamber music, as well as the Gualala Summer Festival of Chamber Music.
