CATHY ROBINSON was born and raised in Leamington. During that time she sang in the County Classic Chorale and in the Windsor Symphony chorus. Cathy took private voice lessons from Elly Dyck in Leamington, as well as from Marjorie Sparks in Toronto. Now living in Toronto, Cathy has been a member of the Amadeus Choir for 27 years, and of the 20 voice Elmer Iseler Singers for 13 years. Both of these prestigious professional choirs have flourished under Conductor and Artistic Director, Lydia Adams.
Though Cathy only started with private voice lessons after graduating from University - in math, not music - she seems to have had an innate musical talent. When she entered the competition at the Oshawa Kiwanis Music Festival, she received the Silver Cup, which is awarded to the best singer at the festival. Audiences will be impressed by her powerful voice, and touched by her lyrical qualities.
Classically trained pianist, Helen Brown, began taking piano lessons at age six. While still in her teens, Helen earned her ARCT degree from the Ursuline Sisters in Windsor. She was the Director of the UMEI Alumni Players musicals and a former church choir Director. She is currently a church organist and the piano accompanist for the Soli Deo Gloria Singers. She tells us to learn to play a difficult piece well is a huge satisfaction for me. I love the feeling of being one with the audience in creating beautiful music. Helen has been involved and given much time to the classical concerts presented by The Bank Theatre from the beginning. Helen was born, raised and still residing in Leamington.
Ben Broll was born and raised in Leamington and has been playing saxophone for 16 years. He holds an Honours Bachelor of Music and Bachelor of Education from the University of Windsor. He has studied saxophone with noted teachers, Gil Grossutti and Jeff Price, and is a certified Royal Conservatory of Music teacher. Ben has been a pit orchestra musician in many local productions and was section leader with the University of Windsor Wind Ensemble.
