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.

Even Bogas' brother Roy, also a pianist, has a Schulz connection, serving as musical stand-in for the Schroeder, the piano-playing kid in "Peanuts" on TV, and performing with then-conductor Corrick Brown of the Santa Rosa Symphony at a special concert at the ice arena.
One of my earliest assignments at this paper, 18 years ago, was to interview Schulz, Brown and Roy Bogas before that show.
Roy continues to serve as pianist for the San Francisco Ballet and as music director of Holy Names College in Oakland.

Pianist Roy Bogas to perform with Ukiah Symphony
Roy Bogas started playing the piano at the age of 4. He has a lifetime of notable achievements as a pianist and conductor. His current career focuses on concerto playing. (Nathan DeHart-Ukiah Daily Journal)
When Roy Bogas was just 4 years old, his parents recognized he was going to be playing the piano.
Not only a pianist, Bogas became a conductor for 17 years after studying at the Vienna Music Academy.
The Concerto in F, which Bogas will be performing with the symphony on Dec. 6 and 7 was originally presented to Gershwin-after his success with Rhapsody in Blue-as a challenge by Walter Damrosch to present his creative jazz side in a more formal setting, one with classical stature incorporating jazz elements.

Las Positas College Presents "A Celebration of the Piano" with Guest Pianist Roy Bogas in Master Class Lecture/Recital on Saturday, September 8
(Livermore, CA) - The Las Positas College Music Department presents a Master Class featuring Berkeley concert pianist Roy Bogas on Saturday, September 8. The event is open to all and gets underway at 10:30 a.m. in Room 801 of the Las Positas theater on campus. The Lecture/Recital begins at 2:00 p.m. at the same location and both events are free to the public. The event is made possible through a grant from the Milanese Fund of the Las Positas College Foundation. Roy Bogas made his debut with the San Francisco Symphony at the age of 14 and was a prizewinner at the Second Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow in 1962. He has performed as a soloist with virtually every orchestra in Northern California and is an active chamber musician. He was Yehudi Menuhin's accompanist in North America, and also worked with Joseph Szigeti, Michael Rabin, Ruggiero Ricci and Jaime Laredo, among others. Bogas is a performance pianist for the San Francisco Ballet and recently returned from a tour to Athens and London with the company. He is the founder of the MasterGuild Series of chamber music concerts at Holy Names College in Oakland where he serves as a member of the music faculty specializing in Piano Pedagogy. He is a frequent lecturer on the subject at meetings of the Music Teachers Association of California and is the author of "The True Art of Playing the Piano", a manual of basic techniques to achieve ease, fluency, and musical control at the keyboard.
