If you love an uplifting story (and who doesn’t?), here’s just the thing for you. Richard White, Principal Tubist of both the Santa Fe Symphony and the New Mexico Philharmonic, has a new book coming out! It’s called “I’m Possible: A Story of Survival, a Tuba, and the Small Miracle of a Big Dream”
White, who is also the tenured Associate Professor of Tuba and Euphonium at the University of New Mexico, experienced homelessness on the streets of Baltimore as a child, and the story of his journey to become the first African American to earn a doctorate in music for tuba performance is one that is a testament to the strength of the human spirit. Turns out, you can do yourself a favor and pre-order the book today. You can also do a local business a favor, and order it from a bookshop in your community, like Bookworks in Albuquerque or Collected Works in Santa Fe.
