Among the dazzling performers presented for this season are superstar Clint Holmes, Broadway stars Tamra Hayden and David Burnham, and the legendary songstress Lynn Roberts.

Celebrating the Music of America

What distinguishes the Palm Beach Pops orchestra is that Bob Lappin builds his repertoire around the music from The Great American Songbook, which refers to the music of Broadway, the Hollywood musical and Tin Pan Alley, including other genres jazz, big band, ragtime, blues and swing. Unlike other “books” – this one is a never-ending story. Lappin and the Pops continue to tell the story, adding new chapters and characters through each orchestral performance. Distinguished alumni of Bob Lappin and The Palm Beach Pops include Mel Tormé, The Count Basie Orchestra, Kenny Rogers, Maureen McGovern, Ricky Skaggs, Patti Austin, Diahann Carroll, Jack Jones, Carol Lawrence, Vic Damone, Lena Horne, Doc Severinsen, Keely Smith, John and Bucky Pizzarelli, and The Mills Brothers… just to name a few. The late Mel Tormé summed it up this way, “Bob Lappin and the glorious Palm Beach Pops… one of the greatest orchestras I have ever worked with in my life!  Absolutely marvelous!”

is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization, dedicated to preserving the music of the American Songbook and making the arts a part of basic education for the children in our community. For information about the Palm Beach Pops In-School Youth Music Education Program, Tickets for Children and Families Program, Florida Stars Program, the Palm Beach PopStar competition, volunteer opportunities and tax-deductible donations, call 561-832-POPS or visit
