The Vancouver Chamber Choir, longtime collaborators with Rob, premired a new commissioned work at their annual Youth and Music concert at Ryerson United Church in Vancouver on April 24th, longtime music director Jon Washburn conducting.
The new work, "Sing no Sad Songs for Me", is an a capella setting of the famous Christina Rossetti poem "When I am Dead, My Dearest".

This is the fourth time the Vancouver Chamber Choir has commissioned a choral work by Rob. The fruitful relationship dates back to 2005 when Rob won the choir's annual Young Composers' Competition with his choral work "Virtue", one of his first completed compositions.
