From the SU website…

Daniel Shores ’99 and Dan Merceruio ’06 have spent their professional careers with a record label located in Boyce, Va., known as Sono Luminus. The company was founded in 1995 when the owners of Cisco Systems, a top supplier of networking systems for the Internet, decided to use their expertise to record music at a high level. Focusing on acoustic, classical and early music artists, Sono Luminus has been nominated for 19 GRAMMY awards in the past five years, winning Best Engineered Classical Album in 2010 and a Latin GRAMMY award for Best Classical Album in 2012. Shores and Merceruio have played intricate roles in helping create the success that Sono Luminus has enjoyed, and both believe their alma mater directly prepared them for where they are today.
