A Musical Tribute To Rollanda Lee

The TD Edmonton International Jazz Festival is honoured to present this Tribute to a local musical legend. Rollanda Lee has been an outstanding supporter of the jazz music community not only because of her belief in the importance of music education and her driving support behind the creation of the Dixieland Jazz Society of Alberta, but because of the countless number of musicians who owe success to her guidance and support.

Along with her 21 years as president of the Dixieland Jazz Society of Alberta, where she provided financial assistance to local musicians, education institutions, and the TD Edmonton International Jazz Festival, she has received the City of Edmonton’s Salute to Excellence Citation Award for her contributions to the Arts and Culture and was nominated for the Y.W.C.A.’s Women of Excellence.

Finally, she has entertained audiences internationally in such places as Japan, Hong Kong, Thailand, The Philippines, Germany, Holland, Barbados, and Hawaii. Her 7-piece Canadian Hot Stars Jazz Band plays a variety of styles such as Big Band, Traditional New Orleans/Dixieland style jazz, swing, and Latin.
