Richard Schoenknecht 

Rick hails from Chicago and North central Wisconsin.  He studied Horn and Music Literature at University Wisconsin Stevens Point. The Army Band program offered opportunities to see the world, so he signed up for four years to play in Chicago and Europe.  Well, twenty three years later, he finally left, but not after playing for presidents and dignitaries in Europe, Asia and the United States.  Rick also played with renowned groups and conductors in Europe and Asia.  One such group is the original Stamitzer Orchestra, Manheim, Germany.  He studied Horn with musicians from St. Louis, Milwaukee, Rochester and Chicago Symphonies, and has played under Don Greene, Jon Borowicz, Morton Gould, William Rivelli, Frederick Fennel, and many others.
