Welcome to the web site of Kevin Robison, a sought-after musician known for his eclectic palate of musical ability and compositional styles. Through three decades of professional experience and a highly developed craft, he creates music that is both sophisticated and accessible to both a wide range of concert-goers and to the performers who regularly commission his work. Best known for his choral music, Kevin has received over one-hundred commissions from ensembles throughout the US, and his work has been recorded and performed by New York City Gay Men’s Chorus, Turtle Creek Chorale, Santa Fe Desert Chorale, San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus, Seattle Men’s Chorus and a host of other ensembles. His original work for chorus and orchestra, Libertad, was premiered by the ensembles of Voices of Note in 2016 (read more about the work in Atlanta Magazine.)
His career has afforded him collaborations both great and small with Broadway performers such as Susan Egan, Malcolm Gets, Joanna Gleason, Billy Porter and Jason Graae, as well as Lily Tomlin, Doris Roberts, Yeardley Smith, Miss Coco Peru and Kate Clinton. As assistant conductor of Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles, he collaborated with composers Jerry Herman and John Kander on tributes to their work, toured five countries in South America, and conducted a special performance in honor of Sir Elton John. While in Los Angeles he was pianist for two plays by Del Shores: Sordid Lives (with members of the movie cast), and The Trials and Tribulations of a Trailer Trash Housewife with Octavia Spencer, both under the direction of Mr. Shores.
For seven years Kevin was Resident Director of Music at the Pacific Conservatory Theatre where he received an L.A. Robby Award nomination for his musical direction of Sweeney Todd. Upon moving to Atlanta in 2007, he became the first full time artistic director for the Atlanta Gay Men’s Chorus, a position he held for the next ten years.
His music can be found in the catalogues of Hal Leonard, Oxford University Press, Alfred Music Publishing, and online at Sheet Music Plus. Other arrangements of public domain material as well as original work can be found on this web site.
