David Kneupper - IHPA legacy

David Kneupper was commissioned by Bob Rogers of BRC Imagination Arts to compose over three hours of music for the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum's many exhibits and two theaters. David discusses the demanding expectations that Rogers had for the musical score, and goes into considerable detail in discussing his creative process. The project has proven to be perhaps David's most challenging and rewarding experience. Due to his score and the museum's innovative and engaging exhibits, the project was awarded the prestigious THEA Award for Outstanding Achievement.
