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
