The Palm Beach Pops Florida Stars program provides an opportunity for musically gifted students to be mentored by a member of The Pops Orchestra, as well as a chance to perform live with The Palm Beach Pops. Each year, Maestro Bob Lappin searches for and auditions gifted performers, ages 6-18, who have been recommended by a local musical professional. Florida Stars was created to ensure a continuous pool of young, talented musicians in the community. The program accepts candidate inquiries year round, and those students demonstrating exceptional promise from any musical genre are chosen to participate.
13 year-old Olivia Schiappa recently performed The Star Spangled Banner at each of Bob Lappin & The Palm Beach Pops six concerts in The Magic of Broadway & Disney Favorites series from March 27 through April 2, 2012. In addition, she sang the national anthem at the 2012 opening day of Spring training for the Miami Marlins and World Champion St. Louis Cardinals, as well as at many other venues including New York Mets games, minor league games, the Palm Beach International Raceway, the Florida Baseball State Championships and various other functions. A well rounded talent, she co-wrote, produced and released her first pop single “Everywhere” and has appeared in many theatrical performances at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre including performing the roles of Mayzie in Seussical the Musical, Judah in Joseph and His Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and Snoopy in You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown. Olivia is currently a student at All Saints School in Jupiter, FL.
