Schroeder receives fellowship
Oct. 3, 2012
Dr. Phillip Schroeder, professor of music at Henderson State University, has received a 2013 Individual Artist Fellowship award from the Arkansas Arts Council. He will be honored at a luncheon Oct. 17 during ArtLinks, the arts council’s annual statewide arts conference at the Hot Springs Convention Center.
The fellowship recipients were selected by a jury of out-of-state professional artists, writers, performers and art administrators. More information is available at http://www.arkansasarts.org/what-new/detail.aspx?id=247.
Schroeder’s music for soloists, chamber ensembles, live electronics, orchestra, and choir, has been described by critics as “wonderfully evocative,” “ethereal,” “rich in subtle detail,” and “full of elegant nuance.” His diverse musical life parallels the diversity of his surroundings, having lived in 12 states. Schroeder composes prolifically, concertizes as a pianist, improvises with a variety of ensembles, and conducts orchestral and chamber groups. He played trumpet and electric bass, and sang in choirs in his youth.
Music by Schroeder appears on the Innova, Ravello/Capstone, Boston Records, Vienna Modern Masters, and Cold Blue labels.
