New York, NY and Odessa, Ukraine - From May 5 through May 29, Apogee Awards laureates representing five leading music academies in four countries will be participating in Apogee Artists concert events and Apogee Academy training events held in collaboration with the historic Stolyarsky State Music School. Featured in these events are multi-instrument prodigy Simion Gronic (performing on six wind instruments) from Kishinev, Moldova; violinist Yuri Wassilewski from Minsk, Belarus; pianist Akim Anum-Dorhuso from Odessa, Ukraine; trumpeter Bogdan Dekhtyaruk from Uman, Ukraine; and cellist Aleksander Lisuk from Bern, Switzerland: all of whom were selected as Apogee Scholars during the Foundation's 2006 Odessa International Music Festival.

Apogee's events in Odessa are being presented on national television in Ukraine, and will also be made available to global audiences through Apogee Videocasting streaming video and in a documentary film being produced in collaboration with Aurience Media.

Apogee Awards laureate Bogdan Dekhtyaruk said, "Apogee's support from my earliest years of study, and the professional musical instrument the Foundation provided for me to perform on, have been invaluable to my life and to my career. Being part of the global Apogee family has given me the opportunity to be seen and heard all over the world and to realize possibilities that I otherwise would never have dreamed of."

Youri Kuznetsov, an internationally acclaimed jazz pianist, composer and educator who previously served as Head of the Department of Culture and Tourism for the Odessa Province said: "Odessa is proud to continue our tradition of hosting The Apogee Foundation's phenomenally successful programs, which continue to enrich our region's legendary artistic traditions and to write new chapters in this region's extraordinary musical history." Since 2006, Mr. Kuznetsov also has served as Apogee's Regional Coordinator in Odessa and as a member of the Foundation's global Advisory Council.

In addition to the Apogee Artists command performance series featuring established Apogee Awards laureates, the Foundation is conducting auditions for new Apogee Awards applicants and holding Apogee Academy master classes conducted by leading instructors such as world-renowned violin pedagogue Semion Yaroshevich, who also serves as the Foundation's Regional Coordinator in Tel Aviv, and Ukraine's leading trumpet instructor Igor M. Baruch.

The Apogee Foundation is an international nonprofit dedicated to discovering, developing and celebrating human excellence in the performance arts. Apogee's global programs operate in three synergistic divisions: Apogee Awards, discovering artistic excellence; Apogee Academy, developing artistic excellence; and Apogee Artists, celebrating artistic excellence.

Apogee Awards laureates are selected by jury through a rigorous audition and review process by experts in the relevant fields. Successful candidates then receive a broad spectrum of support, including the opportunity to participate in the Apogee Academy international training programs and Apogee Artists performance events and media productions worldwide.
