“FOX and ‘Glee’ have been dedicated to raising funds for our Grammy in the Schools programs through various opportunities and initiatives, and these screenings are yet another example of their ongoing commitment,” said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy and the Grammy Foundation.

“We are extremely grateful for their generosity and continued support, and we applaud FOX and ‘Glee’ for having created such a unique and highly original show that spotlights bright new talent, energetic performances and great music — all of which brings tremendous awareness to the importance and value of music education.”
