“A day without making, playing, writing or thinking about music, it’s a wasted day.” -Andre Previn
Alexandra and John Nichols feel similarly to Andre Previn. So they donate their time, talents and treasure generously to create music opportunities for others. Alexandra’s leadership considerably broadened the reach of the Music Institute of Chicago. The full interview with Andre Previn is on the Make It Better website.
This is one of the reasons that the Nichols received the Cultural Visionary Award on Monday at the Music Institute of Chicago’s Anniversary Gala, where Previn was also recognized. But the Lyric, CSO, Art Institute, CPS programs and more have benefited from their commitment to the arts. The Nichols are Civic Treasures indeed!
