Dave Robbins Pianist
Our Sunday services are enhanced by the piano accompaniment of the talented Dave Robbins. In addition to supporting the choir two Sundays a month during the worship service, Dave provide instrumental music for our prelude, meditation, offertory, postlude and accompaniment for hymns.
Dave grew up Chesapeake, Virginia, and studied music at the Shenandoah Conservatory (B.M. Piano Performance) and the New England Conservatory (M.M. Piano Performance). He worked in Boston as a pianist for the Handel & Haydn Society, Boston Ballet, New Bedford Symphony, and Unitarian Congregation of Mendon & Uxbridge, where he was the music director. From time to time, Dave has performed with the Virginia Symphony, such as in 2013’s Nutcracker. In 2012, he accepted a job at the Richmond Ballet and moved to Richmond, where he is also on the faculty of the Academy of Music and is an Assistant Director for Classical Revolution RVA. In his spare time, he plays live improvised accompaniment for the Coalition Theater, an improv comedy theater.
