You will leave this recital of 20th-century brass music with your head full of hummable tunes when DePauw University faculty member Robert Danforth, principal horn of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, is joined by his colleague Anthony Kniffen, the ISO's principal tuba, on a varied program of brass music of classical composers Shostakovich and Vaughan Williams, Hollywood film composer Bruce Broughton, and popular song composer Alec Wilder, among others.

Although Kniffen, principal tuba of the ISO since 1997, has performed with many of the major American orchestras, including Chicago, Saint Louis, Minnesota, Cincinnati and Detroit, appearing as a soloist with several, he may be best known to aspiring tuba players as the 'play-along' tubist on Hal Leonard's interactive educational project "Essential Elements 2000."  Kniffen has toured the U.S. with Summit Brass and alsoserved as sabbatical replacement for his friend and mentor, Dan Perantoni, at his alma mater, Indiana University.

A DePauw School of Music faculty member since 1991, Danforth has performed with the symphony orchestras of Grand Rapids, Toledo, Omaha, Detroit and Cincinnati, in addition to serving as principal horn of the ISO.
