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!”
