Our Supporters


We would like to express our deepest thanks to our Rising Stars Benefactors for sponsoring a student at Festival del Lago this year!

Your support is vital to our organization, and because of your generosity, we are able to change the lives of young musicians across México.

There is no way to fully express our gratitude for your loyalty. We, at Festival del Lago, are continually inspired by the dedication and generosity of the Lakeside community, who answer the call to give again and again.

Thank you!
