Nezahualcóyotl, or more commonly Neza, is a city and municipality of the State of Mexico adjacent to the northeast corner of Mexico City. It was named after Nezahualcoyotl, the Acolhua poet and king of nearby Texcoco, and was built on the drained bed of Lake Texcoco. The name Nezahualcóyotl comes from Nahuatl, meaning “fasting coyote.” Wikipedia
The city is also home of the Orquesta Sinfónica Infantil y Banda Sinfónica de Nezahualcóyotl (“Junior Symphony Orchestra and Symphony Band of Nezahualcóyotl”), created in 1998. It is composed of 45 members ranging in age from 6 to 17 years. It is the only organization of its type in the State of Mexico. It has won various awards, including the “Premio estatal de la juventud 2002” (State Youth Prize of 2002). The orchestra has performed over 200 times, most of these concerts outside of the city itself. It is directed by Roberto Sánchez Chavez.

PLATINUM 365 CITY Sponsors can feature up to five Artistic Highlights for their sponsored city’s page annually (for this first phase of our Reach the World Campaign). We hope to ultimately build an automated system with sponsors, that will allow for direct input and thereby allow us to accommodate a lot more change.
Sparks hope, even when it touches difficult subjects
Creativity is the ability to bring thought into existence.
ZO absolutely believes that everyone has a measure of creativity and that by applying it to every area of our lives, massive change is possible. We encourage all that we meet to reflect on these inner abilities and to develop creatively as much as you are able.
By supporting our efforts through this sponsorship campaign, you are allowing us to connect to more creative souls and we are thrilled to make all of these connections on the basis of our planet’s geography. We believe that this is a connection of the heart.
Whether your sponsorship is for yourself, for your creative business enterprise, or for a Hero or Shero that is still with us (or In Celebration of one who has gone before), we believe in the eternal spirit of all that we do. What has been done before, affects us, and what we will do will affect the next generations. Thank you so much for your support. We wish you an overflow of creativity!
