What they say about FAF

“Robin and I would like to thank you for making our trip to Toronto a wonderful one. I know the kids had a BLAST (and so did we). From start to finish, the tour was well organized – thanks to you. We absolutely loved meeting Carol and her choir….. what a great opportunity – the exchange went very well. We really look forward to working closely with you and FAF in the future.”

- Robin Chenot & Chris Ann Powers, Directors, Greenwich PS Honor Choir, April 2007

“The trip was a wonderful success. Our guides were excellent; we got to sing at the Vatican for a Mass in St. Peter’s and it was wonderful. The educational tours were excellent and the guides for them were well organized. The final dinner was excellent. Thank you for your work; it was good working with you again.”

- Ellen Bowen, Grosse Point High School to Italy

“The With One Dream… Rebuilding Hope in Haiti Benefit Concert sponsored by Friendship Ambassadors Foundation was not only a highlight – it was the best performance the World Children’s Choir sang in for the entire 2009-2010 concert season. I can still hear the voices of the children and the 150 wonderful young orchestra players performing With One Dream to conclude the concert. This is a very precious lifetime memory. We are still receiving compliments, and send our love and gratitude to you, Yin-Chu, and everyone at Friendship Ambassadors Foundation for making this event possible.”

- Sondra Harnes, Artistic Director, World Children’s Choir 2010

“The Movement Laboratory Youth Ensembles’ “Goodwill thru Dance Program” has traveled with FAF for over 20 years. Ten years ago we traveled to Italy and developed artistic relationships and personalized cultural exchanges. After years of communication we were able to renew these connections with young artists / students and professional colleagues. We are exploring an exchange for a company to come to the USA as our guest in 2008. Partners in Padua, Rome and Florence hosted our dancers with great enthusiasm and respect. Thanks FAF for helping Judy Williams Henry and her Movement Laboratory Youth Ensemble represent the USA as “Children of Hope; Children of Peace”. We will continue to create, illuminate and teach peace.”

- Judy Williams Henry, Founding Artistic Director, Movement Laboratory, July 2007
