  • Third Annual Invincible Summer: Patrick Kisicki Memorial Music Festival

  • Please join students, colleagues, friends, family and fellow musicians for this very special day celebrating the amazing life and legacy of Patrick Kisicki. 

    About Patrick Kisicki

    Invincible summer patrickPatrick Kisicki was a passionate musician, composer and educator who had a profound impact on all who knew him. He taught music courses, conducted ensembles and coordinated the guitar department at Carroll Community College from 2008-2015. He also taught at Peabody Preparatory, West Middle Schol, Encore Summer Music Camp, Maryland Performing Arts Institute and at Coffey Music. 

    Patrick performed regularly in the tri-state area, most notably in The Table Top Poets and Wildfire Three. Patrick also generously donated his time, organizing and directing the semi-annual fundraiser Kevin’s Concert—an event conceived by Patrick to raise funds and awareness about organ donation—for which he was named Volunteer of the Year in 2009 by the National Kidney Foundation of Maryland. 

    On March 2015, Patrick passed away from cancer. In his honor, we created the Invincible Summer Music Festival. Performers in the festival include students and friends of Patrick’s, along with a number of other area artists. In addition to great music, there will also be outdoor games, food trucks and vendors. All proceeds from the event will go towards a music scholarship in Patrick’s name.

    “My dear,

    In the midst of hate, I found there was, within me, an invincible love.
    In the midst of tears, I found there was, within me, an invincible smile.
    In the midst of chaos, I found there was, within me, an invincible calm. 
    I realized, through it all, that…
    In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer.
    And that makes me happy.
    For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me,
    there’s something stronger – something better, pushing right back."

    – Albert Camus
