Robert C. Christesen R.I.P.


We note with sadness the Oct. 12 death of Robert C. Christesen, distinguished baritone, teacher, and administrator. His career as a professional singer took him from the Manhattan School of Music to a 13-year run in Frankfurt and Dortmund with numerous guest engagements along the way. From the mid-’80s he served the Wake County Public Schools, retiring as vice principal of West Cary Middle School in 2009.

The obit is here.

A memorial gathering to celebrate his life will be held on Saturday, Oct. 22, at 6:00 p.m. at Mitchell Funeral Home, 7209 Glenwood Ave., Raleigh.

We join his many colleagues, students, and friends throughout the world in mourning his loss as we extend deepest sympathies to his family.
