Robert Graham (www.robertgraham.org) is a Toronto-based Canadian/Australian pianist, singer and songwriter. He has worked as a professional pianist, accompanist, vocalist, music director, and vocal/repertoire coach, and has played with many multi-genre ensembles on two continents - including two UK tours with the Canadian roots supergroup "Tanglefoot".

His highly eclectic Toronto based band The Fairest and Best (www.thefairestandbest.com) recently released their debut EP which has elicited all - network licensing contracts from The Discovery Channel, FOX Sports and NASCAR as well as fifteen other notable TV programs none of which Robert has ever watched!

CONCERT BAND

Resa Kochberg

Reawaken That Talent - Rediscover Making Music

Growing up, there was nothing else Resa wanted to do but study music. After graduating in 1974 with a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Toronto, Resa taught as a Band Music Specialist for the Scarborough Board of Education until she put teaching on hold to start a family. While raising her three children, she had a “cottage industry” clothing business and taught private piano lessons. For the next eighteen years, she abandoned her flute and piccolo. After those eighteen years, Resa returned to music, teaching for the Toronto District School Board, where she also conducted the Concert Band for Toronto Music Camps and led workshops as a flute specialist. For three years Resa had the privilege of conducting the Toronto East All City Band. Resa currently plays and performs with the North York Concert Band and the Encore Symphonic Band, and conducts a flute ensemble, "The Enchanted Flutes".

14

Resa’s past seventeen years have been one of her greatest joys, as she shares her love of music with all the dedicated members of Resa’s Pieces. Along with conducting Resa’s Pieces Concert Band and sharing in its accomplishments over the years, Resa is delighted that both Resa’s Pieces String Ensemble and Resa's Pieces Singers are flourishing. She also takes pride in the establishment of Resa’s Pieces Symphony Orchestra. Resa was recently honoured with an Urban Hero Award, given to people in the community whose personal efforts and contributions have made significant impact on others. In her spare time, Resa, together with Marshall, are devoted to their six cherished grandchildren.
