Derik Nelson & Family - UNITED STATES AMBASSADORSHIP
Moldova & Albania
Derik, Riana, and Dalten Nelson will be traveling to Chisinau, Moldova and Tirana, Albania as Cultural Ambassadors for the U.S.A.
On their assignment abroad, they'll be working with local communities in two countries to inspire and educate through music—as a family. They were selected from 300 musical ensembles through a rigorous application and interview process.
In cooperation with the U.S. Department of State, the Nelson siblings will be engaged in "cross-cultural communication including public concerts, interactive performances with local traditional musicians, lecture demonstrations, workshops, jam sessions and media interviews and performances. [This tour] will focus on younger and underserved audiences in over 40 countries around the world with little or no access to live American musical performances." (source: www.Amvoices.org/ama)
