Tuba Player, Dr. Richard White knows all about overcoming potential life threatening and life altering obstacles that stifle individual evolution and development. Dr. White experienced homelessness for several years as a young child.

He began his tuba studies with Ed Goldstein at age twelve at The Baltimore School for the Performing Arts, where he graduated with honors. He then went to the Peabody Conservatory of Music to study with David Fedderly (Principal Tubist, Baltimore Symphony) where he received his Bachelor’s degree. On the advice of Mr. Fedderly, Richard traveled to Indiana University to study with the legendary Professor Daniel Perantoni. He continued his studies there receiving both his Master’s and Doctoral degrees.

Richard Antoine White, also known as RawTuba, is the first African American to receive a DM in Tuba.

Join us to celebrate the academic accomplishments of children impacted by homelessness throughout Indianapolis, while honoring the businesses and individuals who are transforming lives through education. Sponsorships begin at $2,500.  Learn more about our sponsor levels here or contact Amber Ewing Kostoff at
