At King Center In Melbourne
BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – The Brevard Community Chorus under the direction of Dr. Robert E. Lamb will present selections from George Frideric Handel’s beloved oratorio, Messiah this weekend.
The chorus will appear at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 8 at the King Center for the Performing Arts in Melbourne.
Accompanied by select players from the Brevard Symphony Orchestra, the 120-voice group will perform the uplifting Hallelujah! and other well-known choruses, such as Unto us a Child is born.
Dr. Lamb is pleased to be staging Messiah after a one-year absence as conductor of the Brevard Community Chorus.
“This is simply glorious music,” said Lamb. “Handel’s Messiah is an extremely emotional and dramatic retelling of the Christmas story and the life of Jesus. And,” he added, “I can’t think of anything else I’d rather be conducting at this time of year.”
The Brevard Community Chorus is an all-volunteer musical organization serving South and Central Brevard. The members meet weekly for the purpose of rehearsing and performing the larger works of the choral repertoire
General admission tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for seniors and active military and $5 for children or college students with valid student identification.
