Bob was also one of the leads in Peter Sellars’ production of “Orlando” at the A.R.T. in 1980 (when Peter was still a Harvard student).  He was a wonderful performer and a lovely man, he will be very sadly missed by the music community here in Boston….

    Robert Honeysucker while on the way to New York to attend a rehearsal 
    died in Conn. on October 7 of cardiac arrest at the age of 74.  He had a 
    long career as baritone soloist in concert and opera. He appeared through 
    the U. S. and in many other countries including Japan, New Zealand, 
    Germany and Austria.  He was born in Memphis and came to Boston for 
    post-graduate studies at Boston U.. He remained here and sang for the 
    BSO under Levine (Fidelio), Nelsons (Salome), and many more 
    appearances in opera, including Rigoletto, Amonasro, Escamillo, and 
    Porgy.  I saw him as Iago, Scarpia, Don Fernando (Opera Boston), and in 
    countless concerts. I will never forget his Saint James in Le Cid for Odyssey 
    Opera which he sang from the Jordan Hall balcony.  He had a beautiful 
    voice.
    He taught at Boston Conservatory and the Longy School.
    
    I met him on a few occasions and found him to be friendly and a totally 
    nice guy.  The memorial service will take place on Saturday at All Saints 
    Parish in Brookline at 11 AM.
    
    Angelo from Boston
