As a composer and bandleader, Rob's ensembles further demonstrate a blending and furthering of jazz and classical music, including his 10-piece ensemble “Storytime” and a jazz quartet (Rob Mosher's Supervillains).
Canadian born and raised, Rob graduated with a music degree from the University of Toronto and participated in the Banff International Workshop in Jazz and Creative Music. Shortly thereafter, he relocated to New York City since 2004 where he is active as a leader and sideman. Venues and events recently played with his own ensembles in NYC include the Brooklyn Lyceum, Jazz Vespers @ St. Peter's Church, Make Music New York, Spike Hill, T.B.D.'s, Anna Maria Kellen Auditorium, Third Street Music School Settlement, and the ReneeWeiler Concert Hall.
Mosher's other musical projects include: the Rob Mosher String Quartet, a classical ensemble with soprano sax replacing 2nd violin and Soprano/Soprano, a classical duo with soprano sax and soprano operatic voice. Mosher has also appeared as a freelance oboist and performed and recorded often as a jazz sideman. He served as principal oboist in the Brooklyn Conservatory Orchestra in 2005-6 and was a member of the 40 Fingers Saxophone Quartet from 2001-2004.
Awards received include two prestigious Canada Council Grants to Professional Musicians (2003-2008) as well as a 2007 Puffin Foundation Educational Outreach award.
Future plans include recording a CD with his Supervillians jazz quartet and micro-releases of several classical chamber pieces.
