Robert C. Fekete is a Canadian jazz pianist, vocalist, composer and teacher 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.

ABOUT THE “LIVEStream.LOVE.JAZZ.Series”
“We love organically grown events and this series is a prime example of that. In January of 2019, we started a series called “IN YOUR OWN BACKYARD” when local jazz pianist Doug Mundy asked us if we could store his Steinway grand piano at our Shady Acres Studio. We knew how our jazz fans LOVE the intimate concerts so we thought why not do one ‘In our own back yard’.
The first 4-part piano series was a huge success so we then decided to add another 4 shows and then another 2! 10 shows in total for 2019 and when the piano was removed we decided to continue with a guitar series. Part 4 of the guitar series came during the COVID-19 pandemic so we decided to adapt to the times. Our NEW live-streamed events are now in YOUR own backyard. ‘From our back yard to yours’
To align with our tag line: LIVE LOVE JAZZ and the current situation, we have re-branded our series to be called the “LIVEStream.LOVE.JAZZ.Series”.
We do look forward to having our guests gather in our backyard again soon (when it is safe to do so) but until then we are thrilled to be able to live-stream our events and to keep the music alive in Niagara and beyond”
