Ritenuto Foundation, Inc. a 501c3 Corporation, in collaboration with the St. Edward’s University Music Department, is proud to announce its second annual Austin women-led band Festival: LuluFest, to be held on April 14th, 2018, in the lovely new Jones Auditorium, situated in the Ragsdale Center, on the St. Ed’s University campus.

We are proud to have secured a second-year City of Austin Cultural Arts grant, and are very pleased and grateful to have the City of Austin's support! Obviously, it is very costly to bring these excellent artists to Central Texas; we are reaching out to you to help sponsor this event in any way you can, in order to make it the first-class Festival we know it can be. Your sponsorship will be included in the publicity: posters, programs, radio, and public media.
We thank you in advance!
