    America's Music - Why Study the Beatles

    Performing professionally since the age of 14, Mark Lanter has maintained a busy and varied musical career. As one of the top drum set players in the southeastern region, he continues a steady schedule of performance and teaching. He currently performs with Henri’s Notions, the UA Jazz Faculty, and his own groups—Mark Lanter Review, The Peytones, Black Jacket Symphony, and Bonus Round—while teaching private lessons and Jazz Studies at the University of Alabama, and African American Music and Jazz History at The University of Alabama at Birmingham. Join us for a fun and informative talk about one of the most popular groups of all time—The Beatles!

    Celebrate America’s music! America's Music is a series of public programs created by the Tribeca Film Institute™ in partnership with the American Library Association and the National Endowment for the Humanities, and in consultation with the Society for American Music. The programs feature documentary screenings and scholar-led discussions of 20th century American popular music. The sessions will focus on uniquely American musical genres: blues and gospel, Broadway, jazz, bluegrass and country, rock 'n' roll, and mambo and hip hop.
