Ritenuto Foundation, Inc., in collaboration with the St. Edward’s University Music Department, is proud to announce its first annual Austin women-led band Festival: LuluFest, to be held on June 3rd, 2017, in the newly renovated Jones Auditorium, situated in the Ragsdale Center, on the St. Ed’s campus.

The focus of this one-day event (concerts and workshops) will be women bandleaders — both seasoned and up-and-coming, who are making their music the focus of their lives. The evening concert line-up is outstanding: trumpet virtuoso Ingrid Jensen and Helen Sung (world-class pianist) will be coming from New York City, guitarist Albanie Falletta (based in New Orleans), vocalist Susanna Sharpe, and vocalist Suzi Stern. The evening concludes with pianist Peggy Stern’s Estrella Salsa in a jam with all the players.


5 PM: Albanie Falletta Trio, featuring Masumi Jones

6 PM: Susanna Sharpe Brazilian Quartet

7 PM: Ingrid Jensen Quartet

8 PM: Helen Sung Trio

9 PM: Estrella Salsa, featuring Suzi Stern, Joey Colarusso, Ingrid Jensen, Daniel Durham, Michael Longoria and Peggy Stern


The workshops will focus on basic jazz improv skills, not only for students already into jazz, but also those who are classically trained and think they might enjoy improvisation.

The workshops will be instrument specific: Piano (Helen Sung); Trumpet (Ingrid Jensen); Vocals (Suzi Stern); Drums (Masumi Jones).

12-1:30 PM in the Carriage House (music building at St. Ed’s).

2-3:30PM: Masterclass will be held in Jones Auditorium, the building adjacent.

Posted on January 30, 2017 at 10:00 PM

I hope everything would be settled OK. It is really not so happy new year 2017 so far, I am afraid of what is going on in US under new president right now. I hope we can stay together with compassion, love, and peace whatever happens on us internationally. 


Good news is G.G. will go to Japan all 3 of us together this time in this spring!! Please keep open Friday April 21!! We are going to perform at Motion Blue Yokohama with special guest Ryu Miho.

G.G. 2/3 Japan tour was big success!

Posted on May 23, 2016 at 11:00 AM

I came back from Japan!!

I had a couple of gigs with Takana Miyamoto(p) and Kenji Shimada(b), so we called it G.G. 2/3!!

And I reunited with my PTA band which was based on my son's elementaly school PTA board members back in 2006-2008 during my service as a vice PTA president. 

Then, I participated to 60th anniversary concert of Waseda Univ. High Society Orchestra! I reunited many friends in college big band in Tokyo, met older and younger alumnis, about 160 musicians shared stage, in 9 big bands! It was something.

Thank you so much!!

Thank you so much for coming down to G.G.'s mini tour in Austin!

We had a big fun here in Austin, people in Austin is so nice, started from people of JASGA, all audiences, and musician friends who came down, sitting in, made friends with G.G.!

Thank you sooooo much.

G.G. is coming to Japan 4/30-5/6 for mini tour, but this time we have Kenji Shimada for bass since Noriko Ueda can't go to Japan.
