Concert Pianist. Composer. Steinway Artist.
Andrew Lapp is an American concert pianist and composer. He received his first formal piano lesson at age 7 after showing interest in the piano from playing by ear. Andrew continued his private classical studies with Sandra Lawler between 2001-2008.
In December of 2011, Andrew received his degree in Piano Performance from Southeastern University under the direction of Ching-wen Hsiao (student of Yoheved Kaplinsky and Jerome Lowenthal from The Julliard School) and Young-Ah Tak (student of Leon Fleisher from Peabody Conservatory of Music), as well as a Minor in Business and a Minor in Music Technology. Andrew has performed in master lessons with noted professors including Dr. Marc Silverman (Manhattan School of Music), Rebecca Penneys (Eastman School of Music), Dr. Kevin Orr (University of Florida), and Dr. Sergio Ruiz (Sam Houston University).
Along with performing as a soloist, Andrew has appeared as a featured artist with the Imperial Symphony Orchestra, Venice Symphony Orchestra, and the Sarasota Pops Orchestra. In 2010, Andrew was invited to join Steinway’s Young Artist Roster as the first American young artist in the program. He debuted as an accompanist for a 300-voice choir at Carnegie Hall in New York City that same year.
In 2013, Andrew was added to the legendary Steinway Artist Roster for international recognition from album sales as a solo artist. He also served as Artist in Residence at FirstSarasota, The Downtown Baptist Church in Sarasota, Florida between 2013-2020.
In 2019, Andrew held his first international concert as a solo pianist in Canada.
Today, Andrew occasionally performs concerts nationally, incorporating a musical blend of virtuous Classical repertoire and his own arrangements of Sacred, Gospel, and other popular selections. His Sacred and Gospel interpretations have been featured in pre-shows for The Gather Vocal Band; The Collingsworth Family; The Inspirations; Legacy 5; The Booth Brothers; and Guy Penrod, former lead vocalist for the Gaither Vocal Band.
