American Music Abroad - In Africa!
The time has come! It is fitting that the snow is falling hard in Chicago today on our last day in town for a month. After a couple days in Washington DC, we depart for a month long trip to Africa with the American Music Abroad (AMA) program. We'll be performing, conducting workshops, collaborating with local musicians, and much more in 4 countries (The Republic of Congo, Liberia, Mauritania, and Niger). We're beyond excited and honored to be a part of this once-in-a-lifetime adventure! Run by the US State Department and American Voices, AMA has a long history of cultural ambassadorship (click here for more information). Please make sure to follow our Facebook page here, as we will be updating it with as many pictures, statuses, and blog posts as we can. Thank you all for your support and love, and we will see you state-side in December!
