He has been heard in solo recitals across the United States, in Baltimore, Austin, Chicago, Memphis, Los Alamos (NM) as well as on radio at WFMT-Chicago and WKNO-Memphis. An enthusiastic performer of contemporary music, he is a member of the Luna Nova Ensemble in Memphis, TN and performs annually in the Belvedere Chamber Music Festival.

In 2017, he was selected as a finalist for the American Prize in the solo and concerto categories, and was awarded the "Best Szymanowski Performance" prize at the 2nd Future Stars International Competition. In recognition of his achievements in organ playing, in 2016 he was awarded the Richard Ross Memorial Prize in Organ at the Peabody Institute. Mr. Robak has received scholarship support from the Kosciuszko Foundation and the Polish American Arts Association of Washington, DC. 

In addition to performing, Mr. Robak is a passionate educator. He is a member of the piano faculty at the Peabody Preparatory and is in his fifth and final year serving as a Graduate Assistant in Keyboard Studies at the Peabody Conservatory.
