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

“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

“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

“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

What's New

2016 Summer Youth Assembly at the United Nations:  The 2016 Summer Youth Assembly took place on August  10-12 at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City. Corresponding with International Youth Day and less than a year after the Sustainable Development Goals were established, the three-day conference consisted of panels and workshops pertaining to the 17 goals. The conference culminated in the development of the 2016 Summer Youth Assembly Resolution, a collaborative effort among all youth delegates present and a demonstration of their commitment to sustainable development.
