Listen to Robert Honeysucker Concert at MSC!
Maple Street Church was honored to welcome baritone Robert Honeysucker to Maple Street Church this past February. Mr. Honeysucker is internationally recognized for his brilliant opera, concert, and recital performances. Mr. Honeysucker, who marched with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., presented a program on the Civil Rights Movement in song and word. We were deeply moved by his singing and story and the accompaniment of the accomplished pianist, Noriko Yasuda.
Robert Honeysucker's voice has inspired critical acclaim: "...powerful, passionate and plaintive... a voice that possesses great richness and warmth." He was honored as 1995 "Musician of the Year" by Boston Globe critic Richard Dyer. He has appeared with many opera companies across the United States, including Boston Lyric Opera, Opera Company of Boston, and Opera Boston. Overseas Mr. Honeysucker has performed in Germany, Austria, the Persian Gulf, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. He has appeared as soloist with the Handel and Haydn Society under the direction of Christopher Hogwood; with the Pittsburgh Symphony under the direction of Michael
Tilson Thomas; with the Utah Symphony and Mormon Tabernacle Choir directedby Keith Lockhart, televised on PBS; and with the Sapporo Symphony, Osaka Philharmonic, and Tokyo Philharmonic in Japan.
Robert Honeysucker has enjoyed many performances with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and also with the Boston Pops, including Fourth of July concerts on the Esplanade in Boston, conducted by John Williams and Keith Lockhart. He is a member of the voice faculties of The Boston Conservatory, New England Conservatory Extension, and The Longy School of Music.
We are deeply saddened at the passing of our beloved friend, Robert Honeysucker, this October (2017). He graced us with his art and his inspiration. We will miss him.
