1st Annual LuluFest
In Austin, Texas
To Be Presented Saturday, June 3
By Ritenuto Foundations, Inc.
In Collaboration with
The St. Edward's University Music Department
& Festival Founder/Artistic Director
Peggy Stern
  
Women Bandleaders, Including
Helen Sung, Ingrid Jensen, Albanie Falletta,
Susanna Sharpe, & Peggy Stern,
Are the Focus of LuluFest
     

 


May 22, 2017
 
LuluFestPianist/composer Peggy Stern is passionate about creating opportunities for women bandleaders to present their music. In 2004, she founded the Wall Street Jazz Festival, which was held for 12 consecutive years in Kingston, New York, for exactly that purpose. After relocating to Austin, Texas in the spring of  2013, Stern was inspired to continue the festival's concept in Austin's forward-thinking community.
 
Her new brainchild, the first annual LuluFest, is a women-led band festival that will premiere on Saturday, June 3, with concerts from 5 to 10pm and workshops scheduled throughout the day. The festival, presented by Ritenuto Foundation, Inc., in collaboration with the St. Edward's University Music Department and founder/artistic director Peggy Stern, will feature a broad spectrum of music -- from jazz to Western swing to Latin and Brazilian. The concert series will be held on Saturday, June 3, from 5:00 to 10:00 pm, at the Jones Auditorium in the Ragsdale Center at St. Edward's University, 3001 S. Congress Avenue, Austin.
 
The focus of LuluFest will be women bandleaders, both seasoned and up-and-coming, who have committed their lives to music.
 
"These festivals are my attempt to even things out, between men and women bandleaders," says Stern. "Obviously we have a long way to go, but having women in charge of the music they are presenting helps to change the tone of the jazz culture, for future (and present) composers and leaders."
 
The evening concert schedule is as follows:
5pm: Albanie Falletta Trio, featuring Masumi Jones
6pm: Susanna Sharpe Brazilian Quartet
7pm: Ingrid Jensen Quartet
8pm: Helen Sung Trio
9pm: Estrella Salsa, featuring Peggy Stern, Suzi Stern (no relation), Joey Colarusso, Ingrid Jensen, Daniel Durham, Mike Longoria
 
Daytime workshops will be instrument specific: Piano (Helen Sung); Trumpet (Ingrid Jensen); Vocals (Suzi Stern); Drums (Masumi Jones). From 12 to 1:30pm, the workshops will take place in St. Edward's University's Carriage House, and from 2 to 3:30pm, a master class will be held in the Jones Auditorium.
 
Workshop passes can be bought separately at $30 for adults and $15 for students, or interested musicians can buy a festival pass for $50 that grant access to both the workshops and concerts.
 
More information about the artists, the concept of the Festival, and fees and directions can be found at lulu-fest.com. This project is supported in part by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department.
 
 
Peggy SternPianist/composer and native Philadelphian Peggy Stern lived, worked, and taught in New York, Boston, San Francisco, and Seattle, and toured widely throughout Europe, the U.S., Canada, Australia, and Japan, before relocating to Austin in 2013. Her music has a particularly broad ethnic base -- in addition to European and American classical music, it draws from Brazilian, African, Jewish, Irish, Cuban, and traditional jazz influences. Joining the vibrant music scene in her new home city, she intends to create a new (for her) musical genre, which she calls Cowboy Jazz.
 
Peggy has recorded and/or toured with such musicians as Lee Konitz, Diane Schuur, David "Fathead" Newman, Gary Peacock, Gene Bertoncini, Bud Shank, Thomas Chapin, Machito, Gerry Mulligan, and Emily Remler, to name a few. Among the many women bandleaders whom she booked to appear at her Wall Street Jazz Festival were Sheila Jordan, Ingrid Jensen, Christine Jensen, Jay Clayton, Dena DeRose, Su Terry, Claire Daly, Jamie Baum, Teri Roiger, Roberta Piket, Virginia Mayhew, Laura Dubin, Sheryl Bailey, Allison Miller, Marilyn Crispell, Jenny Scheinman, Natalie Cressman, and her own Estrella Salsa.
 
Peggy Stern Z OctetPeggy Stern's most recent recording is Z Octet (2016, Estrella Productions).
 
"It has been 16 years since Peggy Stern last applied her piano, composing and arranging talents to a mid-sized ensemble. Z Octet was worth waiting for . . . . Stern's writing weaves piano, clarinet, cello, trombone, flute, bass and drums into rich and often surprising textures. . . . The CD ends with an unlisted bonus track that makes enchanting use of cello, trombone and flute. The whole album is a bonus." -- Doug Ramsey, Rifftides
 
"This is Duke Ellington's brilliance, Maria Schneider's local color, and Miles Davis' diamond hard seriousness all melded and tempered by a singular mind and talent into a cogent and familiar musical statement." -- C. Michael Bailey, All About Jazz
 
"Peggy Stern has taken from her experiences playing in the bands of Eddie Henderson, Machito and Lee Konitz to weave a very special tapestry of indefinable music that bobs and weaves like a boxer named Ali." -- Mike Greenblatt, Classicalite
 
"This is music possessed of great explosions, bristling rhythms, dynamic contrasts starkly illuminated, and with unrelenting dramatic thrust. It is a record to die for." -- Raul da Gama, Jazz da Gama

After the Melvin Sparks debacle, I thought it would be a good idea to have a thread where anyone in the Dallas or Austin area might give advance warning on upcoming significant jazz concerts.

 

Unfortunately, I don't know of anything at present.
