Dr. Robert E. Lamb will conduct the 100-plus voices of the Brevard Community Chorus when they present Mozart's famed Requiem Mass in D minor. Accompanied by select players from the Brevard Symphony Orchestra, the Requiem will feature the chorus along with professional soloists in Mozart's final work. In recent years, the Requiem has enjoyed renewed popularity, in part due to the success of the 1984 biographical film, Amadeus.

The Brevard Community Chorus is a volunteer organization of 100-plus voices that meets weekly for the purpose of rehearsing and performing the larger works of the choral repertoire. The group is at home in the Maxwell C. King Center for the Performing Arts, where the chorus has performed such works as Handel’s Messiah, Poulenc’s Gloria, Mozart’s Requiem, Brahms’s Ein Deutsches Requiem, and Orff ’s Carmina Burana.
Dr. Lamb is Professor of Music, Director of Choral Activities, and a member of the Department of Fine and Performing Arts at Eastern Florida State College. The North Carolina native attended Wake Forest University and later the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, where, he earned a Master of Music in Choral Conducting. Lamb earned the Doctor of Musical Arts at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music. He was the 2006 recipient of the Julius Herford Prize, awarded by the American Choral Directors Association, for his doctoral work concerning French Baroque composer, Michel-Richard de Lalande.
