Description


5 Women Saxophone Journeys featuring Virginia Mayhew, Erica Lindsay, Laura J. Dreyer, Su Terry and music director, Fostina Dixon. This is a world premiere event featuring five women telling their journeys as female saxophonists: how they persevered, what inspired and motivated them to continue, how they came into their own identity as bandleaders, and their musical compositions. The evening will feature each artist’s unique style and original compositions in a variety of ensemble configurations from duos to octets. Together they will identify their similarities and differences as individuals and as artists. The aim is to inspire more females to see themselves present in a male-dominated art form and bring change in education, performance, and acceptance of women in jazz.

 

The concert will be followed by a meet and greet reception where you can learn more about these world-class musicians and their journeys.

 

This special event program is funded in part by The National Endowment for the Arts Grants for Arts Projects and The Heinz Endowments Pittsburgh’s Cultural Treasures Initiative.
