2015 Symphony Under the Stars


 

STEVE LIPPIA - Vocalist

Steve Lippia has become one of the most prominent, in-demand vocalists and has quickly established his place among the finest interpreters of “standards” and traditional pop music in the nation. He has performed to sold-out audiences with major symphonies across the country and has headlined for extended engagements in both Las Vegas and Atlantic City. His youthful, energetic talent and powerful show creates a perfect blend of “classic” with “today,” introducing a new generation to this timeless music, and transporting long-time listeners back to the era of “Old Blue Eyes.”

His music is delivered in a deeply personal way including standards engraved in the American History of Music: “Anything Goes,” “Old Man River,” “Luck Be a Lady,” “My Way”; it all comes back to us through Steve’s work. Reminiscent of the young Sinatra, Lippia moves from crisp, popping swing tunes to lush, poignant ballads with equanimity. His natural sound and style is a remarkable combination of his own musical interpretation and the influence of the best singers of an incredible era of American music. With a hot, driving band, or with a symphony orchestra behind him, Steve impeccably interprets the best repertoire of the Big Band era and American Classic Pop, leaving his audience begging for more.
