Last fall, the Community Foundation of Northern Illinois made a grant to the Rockford Symphony Orchestra (RSO) to help it reach new and diverse audiences. One of the funded projects was a podcast series hosted by the RSO’s Music Director Steve Larsen. In each episode, Larsen interviews a musician from the RSO about their instrument and life in music. In the first episode, Matt Gaunt, RSO’s tuba player, admits that he’s reformed marching band enthusiast, talks about his collection of brass instruments, and demonstrates how the tuba can be more sprightly than its reputation.
