West Ottawa Ladies Chorus

A resident of Stittsville since 2009, Robert brings a wealth of music experience having directed several community and church choirs. He is an accomplished pianist and frequently shares his talents in this area. He is delighted to have worked with the spirited voices of the West Ottawa Ladies Chorus. Striving to maintain the ‘enjoyment of singing’ atmosphere as well as to aspire to quality and professional standards, he finds it a personally rewarding endeavour. Robert’s observation is that singing together creates friendship, harmony and mutual enjoyment. Rehearsals are a relaxed and pleasant means of developing these skills Robert’s music training includes voice, piano and conducting, but professes to be a self-taught musician who has received his best training from the choirs he has been fortunate to work with. It has been said of Robert that ‘he knows how to make each one of us fit in and shine, and how to do this with cheer and good humour. Rehearsals, as well as performances, are a thoroughly enjoyable mix of instruction, discipline, friendship and laughter’. His passion for choral music is experienced by singers and audiences alike.
