Redbud Yoga's Carol Nichols is quite proud of her eldest child, Dan, a faculty member at the Northern Illinois University School of Music, for his winning a Grammy Award on February 12. He earned the award by serving as the recording engineer for the Third Coast Percussion's Steve Reich album. That album won the Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble award. Congratulations to Dan AND to his parents, Carol & Alan, for giving Dan such a solid foundation! And perhaps even more important in that family was the November 12 arrival of Dan & Christine's first child, Ridley Jean, who recently experienced her first snowfall!
