The Mouse Who Braved Bedtime


Louis Applebaum, considered the dean of Canadian theatre composers and the first director of the Stratford Festival's music department, died in the early morning hours of April 20, the festival announced.

"He was kind, magnetic and hugely generous, particularly in the support he gave to young Canadian composers," said Stratford artistic director Richard Monette. Mr. Applebaum was also an arts administrator who served on the boards of many organizations. He established the Louis Applebaum Composers Fund, administered by Ontario Arts Council, to recognize excellence in musical composition of any genre and to help composers of all ages.
