For Undergraduate Students
Sponsored by the Leonard and David Schaeffer Memorial Endowment, this competition honors the memories of Leonard and David, and their father, Albert Schaeffer, by showcasing the exemplary talents of the University of Arizona guitar studio.

Albert M. Schaeffer practiced law in Chicago and Tucson, and was a Chicago jazz pianist, a five-year combat captain in World War II, and a military judge in Germany following the war. His wife, Clare, was the daughter of Aaron Kritz, a famous Chicago cantor. She was raised in a distinguished musical family and appeared in Vaudeville as a young child. She is a master therapeutic recreation specialist, and garnered national attention for her groundbreaking work in music therapy with the residents of Handmaker home for the aging. Clare’s brother, Robert Kritz, is a noted composer of classical music, her sister Brina Roden is a published poet, and her sister Judith Perkins was an accomplished pianist. Their support and guidance helped to establish the University of Arizona Guitar Studies Program as one of this country’s finest.
