PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL – Charlotte Laurent-Ottomane, Executive Director of The Palm Beach Pops, today announced two new changes at South Florida’s most loved pops orchestra, now in its 23rd year of providing audience-wowing concerts and top quality music education in Palm Beach County. Kyle Tintle has joined The Palm Beach Pops as Box Office Manager. After a 20- year career as an Information Strategist at Polaroid Corporation, she moved to this area and held administrative operations positions at both Citibank and Wells Fargo. A lover of music and the arts and an experienced volunteer fundraiser, Ms. Tintle earned a Master’s degree in Information Technology from Lesley College in Cambridge, MA. The Palm Beach Pops has also launched a newly revamped web site at www.palmbeachpops.org. “The new Palm Beach Pops website is representative of the next chapter in our story. It is a wonderful combination of our history, our present and our future. All elements are there – a tribute to our founder, the late Maestro Bob Lappin, a thank you to our fantastic and talented musicians, and a special recognition for the children whose lives we strive to enrich through music. We are excited about our upcoming season and the many more that will be represented on this web site as we grow and thrive,” said Ms. Laurent-Ottomane. The Palm Beach Pops recently announced that it would kick-off the 2014/15 season on December 14 with a “Holiday Concert” by the 10-time Grammy award winning vocal group, The Manhattan Transfer. On January 10-11, Frank Sinatra Jr. will pay homage to his father by singing and bringing the original music scores that define the Sinatra legend. And on March 7-8, The Palm Beach Pops will perform One Singular Sensation: A Tribute to the Music of Marvin Hamlisch, starring Tony Award winner Donna McKechnie, the original Cassie in A Chorus Line; Tony Award nominee Jodi Benson, the voice of The Little Mermaid; and Doug LaBrecque (Phantom of the Opera), a frequent soloist with Marvin Hamlisch. Grammy and Emmy award-winning Music Director and Principal Conductor Lee Musiker will lead the Palm Beach Pops orchestra in performances at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts and the Boca Raton Community Church.
