We want to thank all our current and past partners and sponsors for helping us make the US Fado Tours a reality.
The US Fado Tour events are organized by Portuguese/American Cultural Exchange, with support from our partners
PACE's mission is to strengthen ties between US and Portuguese cultures through the fado. We do this through direct community engagement and through events that enable fado to reach a wide audience.
In our inaugural year of 2013, fado artists from the US and Portugal brought fado into New England schools, universities and concert halls. We hope to reach a few thousand people of all ages, and to help build support for future endeavors.
At present, donations to PACE support non-revenue generating activities, such as workshops and school visits, and help cover the costs of travel, lodging and transportation for all participating artists. In the future, we expect to undertake activities that contribute to the health of fado in the US, such as scholarships for younger performers, composers and lyricists, and also the development of stronger, longer-lasting relationships with fado artists and organizations here and in Portugal.
If your organization or business would like to become a partner or sponsor please contact us.
Fado for all, straight from Lisbon.
