Why the name RED?

RED Music School was opened in memorial of Ruth Evelyn Dryer (McConnell). Ruth was the beloved grandmother of Chelsea and was her main inspiration, supporter, and role model. Chelsea always had a special connection with Ruth.

Chelsea and Paul named their music school RED, Ruth’s initials, with the intention of sharing Ruth’s spirit of inspiration and support with their students.

In addition, Paul and Chelsea started a concert series called RED Chapel. Chapel is the surname of Paul’s music loving, supportive grandfather who was a beautiful inspiration for Paul and his family.
