Palm Beach Pops Music & You

October 19, 2011

The Music & You Education Program culminates on October 27 at the Eissey Theatre at Palm Beach State College in Palm Beach Gardens with a live concert performed by Bob Lappin and the Palm Beach Pops orchestra for students and teachers.

The students and music fans in attendance will enjoy pieces from The Pink Panther and The Flintstones as well as “It Don’t Mean A Thing,” “Take Me Out to the Ball Game,” “Strings on Fire” and other American classics.

Also, one student from each school will be chosen to accompany the orchestra during a musical selection, while another group of promising students will appear on stage to assist Maestro Lappin in conducting the orchestra.

Leading up to this event, musicians from the Palm Beach Pops have been visiting four elementary schools in Palm Beach County introducing students to different instruments and musical genres.

Designed to promote music in the classroom by correlating music with social studies, literature, character education, science and math, the program is offered each year at no cost to the students, their parent, teachers or schools.

Students are given a 16-page color workbook and teachers are given curriculum guides to prepare students for weekly sessions, which are benchmarked to Florida Sunshine State Standards. Now in its 13th year, The Palm Beach Pops have reached out to nearly 90,000 elementary students through the Music & You Education Program.

“This program engages children to learn about music," said David Quilleon, executive director of The Palm Beach Pops.

"We focus on listening skills, studying the valuable role music plays in our history, and incorporate both math and reading subjects.

“I wish we had the funding to serve every school in the county.  With music programs cut from so many school curriculums, this might be the one and only meaningful music experience these children receive all year.  We need more community support to serve even more children,” he said.
