Ever wondered how jazz musicians invent music spontaneously in concert? Jazz pianist, composer, Carleton alum and Stanford University Professor Mark Applebaum '89 knows - and he'll explain it all in a lecture-recital. He'll also provide a short introduction to standard forms such as the 12-bar blues and the 32-bar song form, and perform several jazz standards.

Mark Applebaum is Associate Professor of Composition and Theory at Stanford University. His solo, chamber, choral, orchestral, operatic, and electroacoustic work has been performed throughout the United States, Europe, Africa, and Asia with notable premieres at the Darmstadt summer sessions. He has received commissions from Betty Freeman, the Merce Cunningham Dance Company, the Fromm Foundation, the Paul Dresher Ensemble, the Vienna Modern Festival, Antwerp’s Champ D’Action, Festival ADEvantgarde in Munich, Zeitgeist, MANUFACTURE (Tokyo), the St. Lawrence String Quartet, the Jerome Foundation, and the American Composers Forum, among others. His music can be heard on recordings on the Innova, Tzadik, Capstone, and SEAMUS labels. Additional information is available at
