What they say about FAF

“We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Scandinavia and we all know that this was due to your countless hours on our behalf.”

-Prescott Master Adult Chorale to Scandinavia, June 2007

“Robin and I would like to thank you for making our trip to Toronto a wonderful one. I know the kids had a BLAST (and so did we). From start to finish, the tour was well organized – thanks to you. We absolutely loved meeting Carol and her choir….. what a great opportunity – the exchange went very well. We really look forward to working closely with you and FAF in the future.”

- Robin Chenot & Chris Ann Powers, Directors, Greenwich PS Honor Choir, April 2007

“The Alliance Francaise of Greenwich would like to thank you and your Artistic Director Yin-Chu Jou for your efforts in including [us] in the Greenwich Choral Society trip to France honoring the Greenwich- Vienne Sister City Initiative 2008… The trip was seamless, due in no small part to your advance planning… We thank you and your team for making this historic trip so memorable.”

- Renee Ketcham, President, Alliance Francaise, Greenwich 2008

“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
