At the 2002 International Choreography Contest hosted by the Milwaukee Ballet Company, Canadian choreographer Matjash Mrozewski took first place by the audience’s vote for his piece Another Space using Pat’s Trio No. 1. Charles Grosz of Milwaukee wrote “... his neoclassical Another Space proved an audience favorite. Influenced by George Balanchine, this theme and variation work offered a clear sense of form and balance. Pat Rasile's String Trio #1 proved a perfect musical match, a 21st century work with an 18th century elegance.”
