Ernst Schneider receives his 50 year membership pin from the South Okanagan Branch of the B.C. Registered Music Teachers’ Association

Ernst Schneider receives his 50 year membership pin at the last meeting of the South Okanagan Branch of the B.C. Registered Music Teachers’ Association from president Anita Perry.

Schneider, an active member since 1964, has served as branch president, provincial treasurer, provincial president and president of the national umbrella organization, the Canadian Federation of Music Teachers Associations.

A respected and internationally recognized composer, Schneider’s works include music for piano, choir, solo voice, chamber groups, and orchestra. His music has been performed on radio and television, in festivals and concerts in Canada, USA, and Europe and he was recently honoured in a Gala of his music in 2012 at the Cleland Theatre.

His compositional style has been described as conservative, almost romantic, with just the right touch of contemporary flavour.
