Date: October 7, 2011
Location: New York, USA
Seriously considering traveling your choral ensemble in 2012? Friendship Ambassadors Foundation, Inc. (FAF; www.faf.org) presents another in its series of Free Familiarization Tours this winter in February, during Presidents’ Day holiday weekend.
A free, Land-Only travel grant to Scotland & Ireland will be offered to twenty five choral directors, in February 2012.
Visit: special destinations in both countries, eager to make concert tours and cultural exchanges with choirs; inspect potential hotels, restaurants, and local representatives; interact with local cultural partners and see possible performance venues during this inspection trip. This is also a great opportunity to network with other directors during the program.
Only 25 familiarization grants will be awarded in 2012. Directors may bring along their spouses, too. Although it is initially a land-only free offer: Participants whose ensembles travel with FAF in one year after this familiarization tour will have their airfare for this program fully refunded as well as receiving another free air and land place with the choir during the actual concert tour.
This grant is funded in part by FAF, Inc. and our local cultural partners in Ireland and Scotland.
All choral directors are eligible. Apply by email to FAF Artistic Director Yin-Chu Jou at firstname.lastname@example.org prior to December 2, 2011.
