Robert C. Fekete is a Canadian jazz pianist, teacher and composer who shares his musical philosophy with others through performance and audio recording. His roots are planted firmly in classical and jazz traditions, how- ever he aspires to build a bridge between modern popular music and older musical art forms without losing his focus on the relevance and necessity of art in the world. Robert recognizes the importance of recruiting young people to the jazz art form. He conveys this message through his musical compositions and when he performs live. Robert also teaches at McMaster University and Mohawk College in Hamilton, Ontario.
Robert has performed in the United States, Great Britain and Holland in jazz clubs like Ronnie Scots and festivals such as the Cardiff Bay Jazz festival. He currently performs live throughout southern Ontario.
