Each of the 250 professional musicians who travel to the Lakes Area to participate in our festival stay in home stays around the area. The connections formed through this unique experience are invaluable to the sense of community LAMF creates.

Imagine an opera singer from the Metropolitan Opera or a violinist from the San Francisco Symphony as your guest– practicing and sharing their life experiences… and then getting to see them perform onstage throughout the season!

What is expected of hosts?

Our housing coordinator, Monica Schram, will be in touch to discuss your availability and your home in order to make a successful host-musician pairing. Our artists spend anywhere from 2 days to the full month in the Lakes Area. We ask hosts to provide a private bedroom and kitchen access with light breakfast options.
