This page is dedicated to the music of Robbie Smith who spent his life creating beautiful songs.


We”ll be at Choral Canada’s Podium! Join us on Saturday, May 21st at 9:00 am for a Reading Session of arrangements by composers Laura Hawley, Mark Sirett, and Frances Farell!

A Nova Scotian Songwriter’s Legacy

It was Robbie’s last wish for his music to continue on after his passing. In 2019, his musical partner, Kathleen Glauser, began the process of contacting composers to create choral arrangements of Robbie’s music. Partnering with the Nova Scotia Choral Federation, The Robbie Songs Project has now commissioned 27 new choral arrangements from 16 composers across Canada and the United States. We hope that you will enjoy these choral arrangements of the songs and consider adding them to your repertoire. 

Although Robbie’s death is tragic, he leaves behind a legacy of love written into each song that few can match.

– Linda DeMone
