What they say about FAF

“We are writing to express our gratitude and appreciation for the invaluable assistance provided by Friendship Ambassadors Foundation to the 3rd International Festival of Movement and Dance on the Volga, held in Yaroslavl, Russia. FAF offered both professional and high-quality assistance and truly made a difference for all involved.”

- Lisa First, U.S. Director, & Nadezhda Proshutinskaya, Russian Director, August 1998

“Thank you so much for all you achieved in creating this memorable tour for the Prescott Master Chorale to Scandinavia. These countries contain some of the most stunning scenery, remarkable historical sites, and the friendliest people in the world. Our concert audiences were very enthusiastic. The cost of this tour was very reasonable for what we received.”

- James L Klein, Director, Prescott Master Chorale, May/June 2007

“After having been on numerous concert tours organized by various operators and in many different countries, I have finally found the answer to any choir or performing ensemble:  Friendship Ambassadors Foundation”
