Apogee Electronics is a Gold Partner sponsor of Macy Gray’s M:Gray Music Academy, a non-profit organization in North Hollywood, Calif. that aims to offer affordable after-school and weekend music programs for underprivileged children in Los Angeles, as well as scholarships and sponsorships. Apogee provided the academy with professional recording gear to help enable children in the community to realize their musical potential and explore their talents.

“At Apogee, we support efforts that encourage and offer music education for our youth,” says Apogee CEO and President Betty Bennett. “The Ensembles in the recording studio, along with our sponsorship of the programs, will give the children a chance to more deeply engage in music and the recording process. We are honored to be a part of that growth.”
