What they say about FAF

“This is the kind of human contact that strikes me as something that will work for all countries of the world.”

- Harry S. Truman

“First of all, let me tell you that the tour was Wonderful! We couldn’t have asked for better more receptive audiences. Secondly, whatever you do … keep [FAF Artistic Director] Yin-Chu Jou. I couldn’t have asked for a more gracious, “Johnny on the spot”, kind, loving, helpful person to travel with! And I know very well that it takes a team to make something like this come to fruition. So THANK YOU ALL, FAF!”

- Kim Clayton, Founder and Director, Clayton Productions, August 2008

“I must tell you how much we enjoyed our trip. My students and I cannot stop talking about it. This is a trip I would do again and certainly recommend to my choral colleagues. I give you all glowing reports!”

- Rick Bushey, Kearsley Choir, March 2001

“We just wanted to write a HUGE Thank You! We loved our exchange so much. It was the opportunity of a lifetime. We all came back better people because of the experiences we had there.”

- Nannette Watts, Utah State University, April 1998
