Peavey Endows $60K in Music Equipment
Students at the Delta Music Institute, a music and entertainment program at Delta State University, demonstrated the Peavey audio gear that came from a $60,000 endowment during the institute’s grand-opening celebration, held March 7 and 8 at the Delta State University campus in Cleveland.
Peavey Electronics endowed the musical-equipment grant to support curricula at the Delta Music Institute. Music industry veteran Tricia Walker, director of the institute, said that the Peavey endowment will bolster the program’s live audio production department, providing students with an opportunity to work with state-of-the-art sound reinforcement technology.
“The music of the Mississippi Delta has influenced countless musicians around the world,” said Hartley Peavey, founder and CEO of Peavey Electronics. “It inspired my lifelong passion for making the tools that allow us to create music. I hope that this endowment will act as a bridge to link the rich musical legacy of the Delta region to the next generations of music professionals.”
