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
