Gary Schnitzer Bio

For most of his professional life Gary has been a classical violinist.

He was a titled member of the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra in New York, and was also Concertmaster (first chair violinist) of the internationally acclaimed Mantovani Orchestra
for a couple of their national tours.

Gary has two degrees in music performance: a Bachelor of Music from the University of Texas, and a Masters from the Yale School of Music. However, after branching out on his own as a booking agent andpromoter of his own pop groups for special events in his native Dallas, he developed a new style....sort of a synthesis of classical, swing, jazz, and simply romantic pop music.

He eventually started making recordings with the musicians he most enjoyed playing with; all of whom are world class performers.

In 2006, Gary released a new CD of all original music, tentatively titled Melodia. It is romantic, soulful, sensual……and rich with expressive melody. Whereas his previous recordings featured smaller, more intimate ensembles,
this new recording has a large symphonic sound.
His passionate violin solos will still be prominently featured..
In addition to being a violinist, Gary is also a professional actor: having acted in commercials, dinner theater, and TV shows.
