Pianist Robert Fleitz’s répertorie combines bold works by living composers with rare corners of the standard repertory. He has premiered dozens of works, and performed with ensembles around the country—including the Tampa Bay Symphony, Imperial Symphony, Juilliard Orchestra, and New Juilliard Ensemble. An avid and idiosyncratic collaborator, he has also worked with chamber ensembles, choreographers, actors, theater companies, circus performers, DJ’s, and several local folk and indie groups. Passionate about drawing new audiences and empowering young musicians, he has helped organize arts outreach trips to New Orleans and Tanzania, and is a successful teacher locally. Born in Lakeland, Florida, his father taught him piano from age 4. He now studies with Julian Martin at the Juilliard School in New York City.
