What they say about FAF

“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

“I appreciate your time and effort, am grateful for your support and am quite overwhelmed with pride to read the amount of effort you have made on behalf of our trip. You have a true concept of what diplomacy involves and effect it repeatedly.”

- John McIntyre, Tour Coordinator, Greenwich Choral Society, June 2008

“I know of few projects today that succeed more in helping our young musicians do what they do best: sharing the magic & glory of music with their love of people & their zest for new adventures.”

- Alice Tully

“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.”
