Robert Kuehn (1931 – 2019) came to New York City in 1953 to study at the Juilliard School where he received a master’s degree in voice. In his long career as a baritone, he sang everything from Gregorian chant to George Gershwin, performing as a soloist, ensemble and choral singer. He performed with the widest variety of wonderful musical organizations, including the New York Pro Musica, Waverly Consort, NY Philharmonic, Musica Sacra, and Music Before 1800 among others. For four decades he was a member of the small professional choir of Corpus Christi Church and sang there as recently as the beginning of 2019. For over forty years, he was a board member of The Bohemians, our founding organization, and a supporter of Musicians Foundation.
Bob was a good friend and a great supporter of our mission to help musicians in times of need and crisis. We express our condolences to his family and friends and want to highlight his contribution to musicians.
