"This year's honorees, Quincy Jones and Al Schmitt, are legendary in the music industry for their commitment to excellence, and we are very proud to be able to celebrate their achievements. The contributions of our sponsor partners, all of whom support the art and craft of recorded music and are dedicated to excellence in their areas of expertise, make it possible to produce this event. Thanks to them, we are again looking forward to presenting the kick-off evening for another exceptional Grammy Week."
