French Ambassador's Reception  

"The way they were able to transform this music to a very modern way is very striking in what our two countries can do to understand each other."

On September 28th FAVA and West Austin Rotary Club hosted a reception for Pierre Vimont, Ambassador of France to the U.S. In his honor FAVA organized a concert with four FAVA singers . The Ambassador was so delighted that he invited FAVA to Washington. Congratulations!
