Richard Robbins is Director of Choral Activities and Assistant Professor of Music at the University of Wisconsin-Superior. At UWS, he directs the A Cappella and Chamber Choirs, and teaches courses in choral music education, counterpoint, ear training, and music technology. Dr. Robbins travels extensively as a clinician, adjudicator, and director for choral festivals and honor choirs across the country, with recent engagements in Miami, Los Angeles, Orlando, San Francisco, Chicago, and New York City. His editions of Italian sacred music of the early Baroque are published internationally, and he has been invited to present on a range of topics for music education and conducting organizations, including the American Choral Directors Association.

A conductor with extensive experience in preparing choral-orchestral repertoire, Dr. Robbins also serves as Chorus Master of the Duluth-Superior Symphony Orchestra Chorus. Dr. Robbins' work with the DSSO Chorus comes after leading choirs for the Houston Ballet and for over 50 performances with the Houston Symphony. He has prepared choruses for several major conductors, including Christoph Eschenbach, Ermanno Florio, Hans Graf, Joan Glover, Bernard Labadie, Klaus Peter Flor, Michael Krajewski, Stephen Cleobury, Robert Franz, and Dirk Meyer.

Choral groups under Dr. Robbins' direction have earned awards at numerous festivals, and have collaborated with a wide range of classical and pop artists. He taught choral music in the Texas public schools for several years (most recently at Houston’s famed High School for the Performing and Visual Arts), and previously directed the Concert Women's and University Men's Choruses at the University of Houston. He is a member of ACDA (previously serving on the Executive Board of the Southwestern Division), Chorus America, NCCO, and NafME, and also serves as a festival conductor for the American Federation Pueri Cantores. Dr. Robbins holds degrees from Florida State University and the University of Houston.
