Performer BioS


ROBBY BLACK - A native of Corpus Christi, TX, Robby established himself as an accomplished choral singer at the high school level — earning multiple All-State Choir selections. At 16, he fell in love with barbershop quartet music and has been performing in quartets and choruses across the USA ever since. After graduating from Texas A&M in 2014, Robby moved to Houston. There, he helped found Space City Sound — an internationally competitive barbershop chorus — where he served in musical leadership for seven years. Robby’s love of musical theater grew from his barbershop training  and since Broadway’s re-opening in September 2021 Robby has continued to draw inspiration in his own performances from immersing himself in musical theatre both in NYC and locally.
