BETHLEHEM, PA, January 09, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Marquis Who's Who, the world's premier publisher of biographical profiles, is proud to present Stanley E. Schumacher, Ph.D., with the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award. Dr. Schumacher celebrates many years' experience in his profession and has been noted for his achievements and leadership qualities in his chosen field. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.
Dr. Schumacher is a composer, improviser, and trombonist who has been mastering his music skills for more than 40 years since 1976. He also taught in academia for a number of years as well as teaching privately for nearly 20 years. In 2005, Dr. Schumacher founded Musikmacher Productions, of which he is currently president. He has been artistic director of the Music Now Ensemble since 2003. He was formerly affiliated with the RASA Ensemble in Edison, NJ, between 1984 and 1995.
Dr. Schumacher has recorded several CD's, including "Way Cool", "Experimental Music Lab" and "No Technique", all released by Musikmacher Productions. Most of Dr. Schumacher's compositions are for chamber ensembles which exhibit a variety of instrumentation including narrative parts. His compositions include "Dialogue" (trombone, 1 female narrator, 2 male narrators), "Musography" (3 trombones, 2 clarinets), and "White On White" (string quartet). Dr. Schumacher is a member of the American Federation of Musicians, the International Trombone Association, and the American Composers Forum. He has also been cited in the 61st edition of Who's Who in America.
Having earned both B.M. and M.M. degrees from Butler University, Dr. Schumacher subsequently completed a Ph.D. degree at The Ohio State University in 1976. Born in Indianapolis, IN, Dr. Schumacher married Susan Vetters in September 1967.
His advice to young professionals who share his interests is to first learn to distinguish between what is permanent and what is ephemeral. As he explained it, "Listening to European classical music would help to accomplish this ability to discriminate between the two. Second, if you want to create music of substance, do not be distracted by the ephemeral". Dr. Schumacher would like to be remembered as an avant garde composer/improviser/trombonist who pushed the boundaries in the quest for truth.
In recognition of outstanding contributions to his profession and the Marquis Who's Who community, Stanley E. Schumacher, Ph.D., has been featured on the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement website. Please visit www.ltachievers.com for more information about this honor.
