AFA Collaborations


AFA is deeply committed to year-round stewardship in Houston’s schools and with other arts education/support organizations throughout the year. AFA Founding Director J. Todd Frazier and AFA Executive Director Michael Remson donate significant time to schools and arts organizations throughout the year, thereby building AFA’s strategic partnerships throughout the region. These strategic partnerships, featuring a diverse cross-section of organizations and businesses, result in programs and collaborations that benefit the students of AFA at both campuses. AFA is proud to recognize these partnerships and looks forward to continued collaboration.

American Voices

In August of 2005, AFA was delighted to be part of a unique collaboration with the American Voices Foundation.

Three AFA jazz alumni were able to take part in a unique experience where they served as faculty assistants and performers at the American Voices Jazz Festival in Taiwan, China. AFA interns taught, performed and served as musical ambassadors for the city of Houston and AFA.

Special thanks to all those who helped make this trip possible, with special mention of The Frazier Fund for their assistance.

AFA looks forward to continued collaborations with the American Voices Foundation.
