Obituary

DR. ROBERT G. SCHNEIDER passed away peacefully with his family by his side on Tuesday, March 6, 2018, at the age of 65.

Robert retired from the Shaker Heights City Schools after 31 years of teaching as the Chair of the Music Department and Director of Choirs at Shaker Heights High School. Under his direction, the Shaker Heights choirs made numerous international concert tours performing in notable concert venues such as St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris and the Shanghai Conservatory of Music in China.

He served for 25 years as the Director of Music and Organist of The First Baptist Church of Greater Cleveland in Shaker Heights, where he was instrumental in many musical productions.

A graduate of Baldwin-Wallace College Conservatory of Music, Bob held a Master of Music degree from Northwestern University and the Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the Cleveland Institute of Music. In 2009 he received the Yale University Distinguished Music Educator Award.

Dr. Schneider was President of The Musart Society of the Cleveland Museum of Art, and of Arts Renaissance Tremont. He was past Dean of the Cleveland Chapter of the American Guild of Organists, a member of the Ohio Music Education Association, and a member of the American Choral Directors Association.

Bob is preceded in death by his parents Edward and Gertrude, and his sister-in-law Michelle. He is survived by his husband Joaquin Dos Reis, his brother Bruce, his nephew David, his niece Katie, and many cousins. He will be greatly missed by his family, friends, colleagues and students.

A celebration of Bob’s life will be held at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 7 at First Baptist Church, 3630 Fairmount Blvd., Shaker Hts., Ohio, 44118. Private family interment.
