As conductor, Maestro Robinson has conducted several premiere works for the concert stage including Scott Joplin's opera Treemonisha, Leonard Bernstein's Candide: The Concert Version, and in 2004, Robinson received critical acclaim for his work as conductor and musical arranger for Langston Hughes' Black Nativity: A Gospel Celebration.

He studied composition at the Boston Conservatory with American composers John Adams and Lawrence Thomas Bell, and was recently musical supervisor, conductor and arranger for the Broadway musical Islands at the New Victory Theater on 42nd Street.

Robinson has written for television, film and theater, and produced several musicals for the stage. Many of his classical works have been performed throughout the world, including his now famous An American Requiem for Orchestra and Chorus, The New England Ragtime Suite (recently called one of the most "original works of ragtime written in its true form since the turn of the 20th Century"), the musical tale "The Amazing Bone" based on children's author William Steig's (creator of Shrek) book; and the ballet fantasy Peter and Wendy from the play by J.M. Barrie. Recently, Robinson finished working on the film score for the upcoming documentary In the Shadows of Grey Gardens. He has released several recordings including They All Played Ragtime, along with the original cast recording of Treemonisha: The Concert Version, Langston Hughes' Black Nativity, Symphonic Dances: The Music of Aaron Copland and Leonard Bernstein, and La Belle Epoque.
