INDIANAPOLIS, IN, JANUARY 30, 2008 — Auralex Acoustics, Inc. is making beautiful music at the Duke Ellington School of Arts. The industry leader in innovative sound control solutions is doing its part in helping the inner-city public arts school transform a storage space into a fully functional recording studio by contributing its state-of-the-art acoustical treatment products.
Duke Ellington School of Arts, the only Washington, D.C. public high school that provides professional arts training and college preparation, recently began construction on a new recording studio in its facility, which will include a Live Room and a Control room. Through the efforts of Duke Ellington‘s Instrumental Parents Group (who initiated the project), led by Jim Shahin, and substantial funding from the Grammy Foundation as well as donations from several manufacturers, the creation of this studio is currently under way. Students, faculty and administration are making a personal impact on the project by continually volunteering their time. more
