What they say about FAF

“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

“On behalf of the Huntington Middle School Orchestra, we would like to express our grateful appreciation to FAF for organizing and coordinating our trip to New York City and Carnegie Hall on April 8-12, 2009. Our students had a wonderful time from this trip. The itinerary you planned was excellent, as was your assistance throughout our stay in New York. We are especially thankful to you for arranging the tour and concert at Juilliard School, which is an inspiration to our students. We certainly look forward to using your services again in the future.”

- Robert Folsom, Orchestra Director, Huntington Orchestra, 2009

“It was a wonderful, wonderful trip. We’re all home, safe & sound now with glorious echoes & scenes in our heads & hearts. Thank you for your patience & persistence & attention to detail all the way along the line to liftoff, And all went well in country too — The drivers were excellent & the students were speechless & happy. So, yes, I’ve appreciated how solid & consistent & thoughtful you’ve been, & flexible, & imaginative! All the best. You certainly ARE the best! Many, many thanks.”

- Devon McNamara, Leader, West Virginia Wesleyan College, June 2006

“The Grosse Pointe South choir’s trip to NYC was well organized and very exciting. We so enjoyed the UN and the opportunity to sing for the UN (International) school … (T)he workshop with Gavin Creel – and then watching him in Hair – was an experience our students will never forget. I have traveled with FAF since 1976 and each trip has been a new and exciting experience. By the way, our rooms … were amazing. We were only a half of a block off Times Square and I could lie in my bed and watch Times Square’s ball turn from red, to blue, to green. What memories we will all have. Thank you.” – Ellen J. Bowen, Director of Choral Activities, Grosse Pointe South High School
