Here are some comments about his role as a choir director - from some of his choir members:
The thing is I looked forward to our practices at York Mills Collegiate The reason was in part the music, but mainly it was due to Robert Graham. In Robert, you have a very, very talented musician, one who is tolerant of our shortcomings in a musical way and who makes the time spent there worthwhile and interesting. His sense of humour is valuable in that regard and his ability to relate to the choir members, me included, all of whom has his or her own shtick ( Robert, that means peculiarities), is quite remarkable, an innate kind of gift I think. - Gerry, Singer
Fabulous to be part of such a wonderful group of people and of course Robert makes the choir experience spectacular!!!! ~ xox Kerry, Singer
Thank you Robert again for all your hard efforts, humour, enthusiasm, and your unique talents - you are multi-talented!~ Erica, Singer
Thanks for the wonderful job you have done throughout the year with the choir, Robert. You have made it fun and exciting to come for rehearsals....... ~ Joy Cohen, Singer
What a great experience! We all worked hard, under the direction of our wonderful choir master and fantastic piano player Robert Graham! ~ Rhonda Frances Brewes, Singer
Thank you so much for giving me opportunities, you are an absolute joy to learn from and work with. - Raisy, Singer

About the Rest Restore & Recharge Offering:
"Are you stressed? Tired? Feeling lethargic and "uncreative"? Badly need some "me" time? Do you also love music? Welcome to the first "Rest, Restore and Recharge with Music" event, featuring acclaimed pianist Robert Graham. Imagine a whole hour of "you' time. An hour where you are free to do whatever you wish. An hour with soothing and meditative piano music being performed live, music designed to relax, calm, regenerate and inspire contemplation, all in an air-conditioned studio featuring comfy bean bags, rugs and mats for your comfort.
What you do in the hour is up to you. The possibilities are endless: meditate, rest, read, yoga, dream, write, draw or paint, pray, create, or simply sit and let the beautiful music wash over and through you - as you let the power of the live music revive you. You control exactly how you spend these 60 minutes of bliss. Please note that this is a silent event (other than the music of course). Not only do you have the opportunity to rest, restore and recharge, but the wonderful people at Heart Place will be providing lovely refreshments and organic nibblies afterwards on their shady and breezy verandah. The music will continue there and you can, if you wish, meet and talk with other participants. Or you may choose to simply float home after the event, feeling rested, restored and recharged!"
