Friends of Music Concerts deeply mourns the sudden passing of Robert Kern, a crucial member of our Board for many, many years. Bob's contributions to FOMC were legion.
He was our Treasurer, took responsibility for maintaining our 503(c)(3) non-profit status, initiated our website, and over the years handled publicity and media relations, mailings, invitations to retirement communities, and, together with his wife Marcia, also a Board member, was ever present at our concerts handing out programs and collecting donations. Bob was always a reliable and stabilizing force in our operations, and after the death of FOMC founder Lee Werner, was the Board member who recruited Kathi and me as co- directors of the series.
He will be sorely missed by all of us involved in Friends of Music Concerts, and we will be dedicating the entire 2019/2020 season to the memory of this exceptional man.
