What they say about FAF

“We strongly support FAF’s mission to create international cultural opportunities . . . please, do your best to help them in their non-profit efforts.”

- Andras Torok, former Secretary of State for Culture, Hungary

“I just returned from the Collegiate Chorale Tour to Israel – one of the professional singers in the group. It was a great privilege to be on this tour. Working with Zubin Mehta & the Israel Philharmonic was a as musical treat for all of us. I very much enjoyed the tours provided for the group. I want to highlight Lillian, our tour guide. She is a big bigger-than-life personality and she made everything come alive, investing so much of herself in her descriptions. I only wish I could have seen more. Next time! It was a pleasure touring with her. Thank you for making this trip so special for us.”

- Jim Fredericks Cunningham, Collegiate Chorale Singer, July 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

“I’m not at all surprised that Friendship Ambassadors is having such a positive impact on their audiences… you are creating an impeccable track record that others will no doubt want to imitate or copy, so keep your standards high and noble.”

- Alex Haley
