Lectures with Larry Appelbaum

July 26th, 2016

It was an absolute pleasure to host Larry Appelbaum at JAM MUSIC LAB and the Jewish Museum Vienna. At JAM MUSIC LAB Larry Appelbaum held a lecture on music business: “So You Made Your CD, Now What?” Here he gave practical advice on jazz career development for the institute’s students.

In connection with the exhibition Stars of David – The Sound of the 20th Century, which can be seen until October 2nd, 2016, at the Jewish Museum Vienna, Larry Appelbaum held a lecture on "Jews in Jazz“.

Following the lecture, it was a great pleasure for me to participate in the podium discussion with Werner Rosenberger and Alfred Stalzer.
