Robert Page was a pivotal figure in the national choral and orchestral community, serving prominently on the National Endowment for the Arts’ choral, festival, and overview panels. A co-founder and former president of Chorus America, he played a crucial role in supporting independent choruses. Named Pennsylvania’s Artist of the Year in 1998, Page earned acclaim as “a national treasure” according to the American Record Review. As Music Director Emeritus of The Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh, he guided the ensemble to acclaim both locally and internationally.

Page’s conducting career spanned prestigious symphonies and opera companies across the United States, including Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and Houston, as well as engagements with European orchestras such as the Royal Philharmonic Opera Orchestra in London. Noteworthy performances include conducting the Czech State Philharmonic of Brno and The Mendelssohn Choir in Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis across Europe, and leading the Budapest Concert Orchestra in Haydn’s Creation at notable venues in Budapest and Vienna. His contributions to music extended far beyond borders, leaving an indelible mark on both sides of the Atlantic.
