From the streets of Baltimore to the halls of the New Mexico Philharmonic, a musician shares his remarkable story in I’m Possible: A Story of Survival, a Tuba, and the Small Miracle of a Big Dream.
Growing up, Richard Antoine White and his mother, who struggled with alcoholism, sometimes lacked basic needs such as shelter. Upon joining the school band at age 12, Richard discovers a sense of purpose; taking up the tuba feels like something that belongs to him. While navigating racial and socioeconomic disparities, he eventually becomes the first African American to earn a doctorate in music for tuba performance and lands coveted spots as principal tubist in several orchestras. I'm Possible is a memoir about dreaming big, impossible dreams and making them come true.
