The Inner City All-Stars have been selected to audition for the U.S. State Departments, American Music Ambassadors program. We are excited about the opportunity for a chance to represent the United States. Below is more information about the program:
The American Music Abroad program is designed to communicate America’s rich musical contributions to the global music scene as it fosters cross-cultural communication and people-to-people connection to global audiences.
In cooperation with the U.S. Department of State, American Voices will arrange a series of month-long, multi-country cultural exchange program including public concerts, interactive performances with local traditional musicians, lecture demonstrations, workshops, jam sessions and media interviews and performances. The groups on the American Music Abroad program will tour between April 2012 and April 2013. The tours will focus on younger and underserved audiences in over 40 countries around the world with little or no access to live American musical performances. American Music Abroad ensembles are currently expected to travel in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Central and South America and Eastern Europe.
