I AM delighted to welcome the members of the Asian Youth Orchestra to the United States. Music is a powerful, unifying force in our world, bringing people together across lines of geography and culture.


Your performances have delighted music fans around the world.


I applaud you for your achievements and for your generosity in sharing your talents with America.


I hope that you will take back to your own countries warm memories of the sights and sounds of America.


We value your friendship and hope you enjoy a wonderful stay in the United States.


BILL CLINTON President of the United States of America
