Dr. Weiser has also performed around the world, including a tour as the U.S. Artistic Ambassador of Music in 1996 that took him on an 11 country tour of the Middle East and Southeast Asia. He founded AmiciMusic in 2011 in order to bring intimate chamber music to the Western North Carolina region and has since presented over 250 concerts in the area.
