The Apogee Foundation Celebrates a New Era of Success in Fostering Creative Excellence Worldwide
Apogee begins its 2009/2010 season with unprecedented achievements and historic plans for developing creative excellence around the world. Kenneth Schneider - Apogee Foundation
By: Kenneth Schneider Apogee Foundation
Apogee President Kenneth Schneider said: "It is my pleasure to congratulate the Foundation's many dedicated supporters worldwide on the new levels of recognition and success their efforts have attained and continue to attain. Participation in Apogee’s global family is steadily expanding and demonstrates our Foundation’s ability to inspire a global commitment to fulfilling mankind’s highest potential through art's transformative power."
During the 2008/2009 season just concluded, Apogee achieved new milestones of recognition and effectiveness, including being named “Top Non-Profit” in the inaugural Fast Pitch! Business Awards. For more information on this award, see: http://www.apogeefoundation.org/
Apogee also partnered with international media and technology firm Aurience Ltd. to enhance the fulfillment of its mission through the use of film, broadcast, recording and interactive media. Joint Apogee-Aurience productions already have created greater awareness of Apogee Awards laureates, increased the impact of Apogee Academy educational programs, and expanded the reach of Apogee Artists performance events around the world. For more information on this partnership, see:
As Apogee begins its 2009/2010 season, the Foundation will focus on transforming gifted creative artists' entire career paths, as well as recreating the types of institutions within which those careers develop. Apogee’s trademark Synergy Programs, offering artists from diverse cultural backgrounds the opportunity to transcend boundaries together, will form a centerpiece of these efforts. In the next stage of these programs' evolution, the Foundation will focus on the power of sacred music, representing the expression of mankind’s greatest vision of itself and of our highest shared values, as a transcendent medium inspiring new levels of understanding among people everywhere. For more information on Apogee's work in cultivating synergy through the world's great spiritual traditions, see: http://www.apogeefoundation.org/
The Foundation also will continue to create new programs where creative artists can achieve their fullest potential together. Apogee is now exploring possibilities for the launch of permanent global creative centers where gifted artists can discover unique forms of expression and the means to share these with each other and with the world throughout their careers. In doing so, the Foundation will integrate the most effective educational and artistic traditions from both East and West to create holistic, multi-disciplinary educational environments.
Apogee's aim is to recognize and empower every person's ability to contribute to inspiring creative excellence around the world, and thus to achieve mankind's greatest vision of itself. The Foundation’s management therefore welcomes the public to help shape the institution's future by answering a brief questionnaire, which can be found at the conclusion of Apogee's latest newsletter at the following url: http://www.apogeefoundation.org/
