Robert Honeysucker
In April of 1995, Concert Opera Boston made its "debut" providing major funding for Chorus pro Musica's concert performance of Gounod's Faust. American soprano Pamela Myers starred as Marguerite, Barton Green sang Faust, Bulgarian bass Valentin Peytchinov was Mephisto, and local favorite Robert Honeysucker portrayed Valentin.

"[Pamela Myers] boasted [the virtues] of experience, security, style, delicacy of detail and elegance of phrase;  she alone in the cast was singing in, and taking interpretive advantage of, the French language. [Barton Green] was an agreeably youthful Faust, singing with considerable charm in the lyric passages and surviving the heavier vocal challenges. [Robert Honeysucker] walked away with the vocal honors, as usual; he stood there with powerful dramatic presence and the sound rolled out with sympathy and splendor.  The real hero of the occasion was conductor Jeffrey Rink, who on the evidence of this Faust and his Carmen three years ago, must be Boston's most underestimated operatic conductor.  Friday's performance was notable for intelligence, panache, style, and sensitivity, and Rink's technique is sufficiently solid to get everyone over the rough patches."
