OLYMPIA, WASH. (August 9, 2017) — When Edmond Lapine ’08 was four years old, he received a Fischer-Price cassette player for Christmas. Already a lover of music and books, it didn’t take long for Lapine to learn how to record his own voice on the cassette player. Soon after, he learned how to use the family video camera.
“I would find him staging toys around the living room,” recalls his mom, Sami Kopelman. “He recited stories or played songs as he filmed his staged characters. The music-loving portions of Edmond’s heart and brain were awakened.”
