Apogee Award Laureates

"Apogee’s programs have given me confidence in my place on the world stage; and being a part of the Foundation allows me to always feel optimistic about my career. Having the opportunity to be a part of Apogee and its international events not only is a great pleasure, but also a great honor: opening up new ways of being a professional musician as well as of being a human being."
Arseniy Chubachin, Apogee Rising Star Award Laureate

Note: the structure of Apogee's award and grant programs was formalized in 2005. Because some awards and grants had different titles and/or were accounted for in periods other than academic years or performance seasons in prior years, and because some of the awards listed above were provided by other persons and entities before the time of Apogee's existence and were later grandfathered into Apogee Awards programs in order to assist those beneficiaries further, all entries prior to 2005 have been designated according to their approximate correllary under Apogee's current programs.
