Join virtuoso baritone, Robert Honeysucker, and CCB for this special program and concert as we celebrate the life and music of Ruth Hamilton. Richard Dyer, music critic for The Boston Globe in 1997 state that her voice was as “steady as a rock and as powerful as faith – it could move mountains but it can also gentle down to address the trusting child within each of us”. From The Boston Globe, November 1, 2001 obituary.

Don’t miss out, on what will be an amazing afternoon of music and conversation.
(This is a free concert. Seating is limited.)

Robert Honeysucker performed with Ruth on many occasions, he has enjoyed many performances with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, including an appearance as soloist in Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9, in celebration of Seiji Ozawa’s 25th season as Music Director. He was the baritone soloist in All Rise (Winton Marsalis), conducted by Kurt Masur at Symphony Hall, with a repeat performance at Tanglewood. Among his many appearances with the Boston Pops Orchestra, he has sung at the Fourth of July concerts on the Esplanade, conducted by John Williams, and Keith Lockhart.
Robert Honeysucker is a member of Videmus, as well as member and co-founder of the Jubilee Trio, which presents American art songs, including those of under-performed African American composers.
