What they say about FAF

“Nothing can compare to [FAF’s] firsthand observations & reports.”

- John F. Kennedy

“The devastation that hit New Orleans was only viewed from afar. When we arrived there and met the people it was clear to us that they were just beginning to build back. The people were so appreciative and thankful that we had chosen New Orleans as our destination city. I was humbled by this experience. I am glad we were able to help using music.

I loved that music was an integral part of their daily lives. It was wonderful getting to know the choristers from the New Orleans Children’s Chorus and their director. The combined chorus in the church sounded amazing.

FAF was wonderful. The hotel was beautiful. They arranged a great rehearsal space and were very accommodating to our needs. The concert exchange was wonderful and was the highlight of the tour.”

- Robin Chenot & Chris Ann Powers, Directors, Greenwich PS Honor Choir, April 2008

“Every one of us in the Taiwan Delegation would like to convey our deepest appreciation for your hard work, effort, friendliness, and hospitality for us. It was an unforgettable voyage – you made my dream come true”

- Tony Jian, Group Leader, Taiwan Delegation

“Our concert tour show is entitled, ‘A Voice to the World.’ Did we accomplish that title on this tour with Friendship? Yes. Did we make a difference? Yes. Were our lives enriched by the experience? Yes. Have we helped bridge cultural gaps and understanding? Yes. Would I want Maria Mandova again as our guide? Absolutely! I would trust her with my life!”

- D. Kim Clayton, Synergy, August 2003
