Join the Brevard Community Chorus in a double celebration as they commemorate 50 years of music-making on Florida's Space Coast -- while marking the 250th anniversary of the birth of Ludwig van Beethoven. Beethoven was a crucial figure in the transition between music's classical and romantic eras and is widely revered as one of the greatest composers of all time. Attendees to this special concert will hear his Mass in C, considered a modern piece of church music in 1807, when composed for the Hungarian Prince Nikolaus Esterházy. It remains today a gift for the world. Accompanied by select players from the Brevard Symphony Orchestra and four professional vocal soloists, the chorus will also perform two smaller works showcasing Beethoven's musical mastery, "Elegischer Gesang" and "Meeresstille und glückliche Fahrt." Rounding out the evening will be the world premiere of "The Unknown Region," composed by Dr. David Brunner to honor a half century of choral excellence by the Brevard Community Chorus. Lyrics for the commissioned piece are from Walt Whitman's collection of inspirational poems, Leaves of Grass.

Under the baton of Dr. Robert E. Lamb, the Brevard Community Chorus is an all-volunteer musical organization serving South and Central Brevard. The 100+ auditioned members meet weekly for the purpose of rehearsing and performing the larger works of the choral repertoire. Formed in 1969 by Eldon Moen, the Brevard Community Chorus tours Europe during summers and performs regularly alongside the Brevard Symphony Orchestra.
