The Rafael Méndez Festival is a project whose main objective is to promote culture through music, making the trumpet our protagonist to pay tribute to the great Mexican trumpet player Rafael Méndez (Jiquilpan, 1906 - Los Angeles, 1981), who is considered as one of the greatest trumpeters in history.
Within the activities of the FRM (for their acronym in Spanish) a course and a contest of trumpet are held, as well as a wide billboard of concerts that promote the music of the master Rafael Méndez, in such a way that in each concert are interpreted works of the musical repertoire of the aforementioned trumpet player.
