Mon. Feb. 11 – Special Event Rising Stars

Mon. Feb. 11 – Special Event Rising Stars 4:00 pm, Haus Der Musik, Constitution #112, Ajijic

NOTE: This is a special event, not available in packages. Price: $300 pesos.

The first event of its kind at the Festival, our Rising Stars concert will feature our two chamber music ensembles in residence who both also attended our first ever Festival del Lago this past August. This special event is to help raise scholarship money for students attending the summer festival.

The Festival del Lago is an intensive two-week summer academy for advanced students that take place every August in Ajijic. Put together by the organizers of Northern Lights Festival de Febrero, we had our first season last summer and it was a huge success. We invited 10 faculty members from some of the most prestigious universities in the world, including the Royal Academy of Music in London England, the Scandinavian Cello School in Copenhagen, McGill University in Montreal, Cleveland Institute of Music and the University of Toronto. Students came from Canada, the United States, Mexico, Iceland, Holland, and South Korea. The positive impact it has generated among the students (especially those living in Mexico), and the audience that witnessed it cannot be overstated. The students left the festival with new friends from all over the world, inspired to practice harder and better and with a greater positive outlook for their future. At this event, we will feature two groups, one from Mexico and the other from Canada who both attended last summer’s Festival del Lago. The Walden Trio and the Janus quartet will perform alongside each other performing works by Haydn and Schubert.
