Since 1977, John W. Lambert, has written reviews and articles published, variously, by The News and Observer, Leader, Spectator, Fanfare, Fi, Independent, CVNC, and CVNA. His studies included violin, piano, voice, and music history. A sketch of his thesis, on the North Carolina Symphony's first 50 years, was published by Greenwood Press, in Symphony Orchestras of the United States: Selected Profiles (ed. Robert R. Craven); and his liner notes for several Toscanini Lps were published by Music and Arts Programs of America, Inc. He is a recipient of the Raleigh Medal of Arts, the Durham Symphony's "Share the Music" Award, and a Triangle Arts Award. Lambert is a member of the Association for Recorded Sound Collections and an avid collector of recordings, currently concentrating on East German conductor Franz Konwitschny. His "day jobs" were largely in military shipping and private-sector and government purchasing. He retired as a business officer with NC's Department of Health and Human Services in September 2010. His latest major publication is The North Carolina Symphony: A History, written in cooperation with Joe A. Mobley, with a foreward by Roy C. Dicks.
He is a member of the Music Critics Association of North America and serves on the production team of Classical Voice North America.
