By his name and appearance, Californian musical conductor Robert Shroder seems to be as American as apple pie. But once you start talking to this very talented musical director, you'll learn that he is as Pinoy as kare-kare and adobo. You can't help but be taken aback when you first meet this very Caucasian-looking American talking in straight Tagalog -with the right Pinoy accent.
"Pinoy na Pinoy ako!" Shroder proudly says. "I was born in Kawit, Cavite and didn't immigrate to the US [until] 1991. My father, Jerald Vincent Shroder, was with the US Military stationed at Sangley Point. That's where he met my mom, Rosalinda Enriquez Samaniego."
The founding conductor of the Boyle Heights Youth Symphony, Shroder is also the first Filipino-American in the symphony which was founded in 2002. A favorite symphony of the Office of the Mayor, Shroder and his team frequently perform in government social and community.
Shroder is also a freelance musician and a member of the Local 47, the American Federation of Musicians. He plays to a mixed audience for special events, but his favorite, of course, is performing for the Filipino-American community events.
Music Conductors came into vogue with the rise of Ensemble Music - with so many musicians playing together it became necessary for there to be someone to ‘lead' them, to indicate when certain passages were to be played and by which section, and the tempo required. It is the conductor's interpretation of the music that brings overwhelming success or the opposite to a concert.
Shroder's masterful conducting has made him a favorite of several Filipino artists, like Joey Albert and Pilita Corrales, who know that with Shroder as musical director of their concerts, they are assured success.

As a conductor, Robert has impeccably sensitive ears, as well as a rhythmic and interpretative sense. He is skillfully acquainted with every instrument of the orchestra, and is an outstanding flutist. He not only makes sure entries are made at the right time and that there is a unified beat; Robert sets the tempo, executes clear preparations and beats, listens critically and shapes the sound of the ensemble.
Shroder grew up in Cavite and studied at Emilio Aguinaldo Elementary School, Kawit High School and San Sebastian High School. He then took up Music Conducting at the University of the Philippines Conservatory of Music, with Flute as his major instrument.
Shroder admits his passion and talent for music are in his genes.
Robert won the Grand Prize in the National Music Competition for Young Artists in 1982, which was sponsored by Imelda Marcos.
Shroder also taught flute and chamber music in UP and did recordings for pop music and the Pinoy movie industry. He immigrated in 1991 and first stayed in San Diego where his parents lived.
Robert and wife Amy have four children, Katrina, Timothy, Vanessa and Andrew. Vanessa is a flutist like her dad while Andrew is a singer. Since migrating to the States, Robert makes sure he and his family maintain close ties with the homeland. "We go back at least every other year to the Philippines. I am always in touch with friends and associates in the Philippines," he said.

Shroder, who taught flute and chamber music in the University of the Philippines (Diliman campus) and whose success in recordings for pop music, was a byword not only in musical circles, but also in the home country's movie industry.
He continued to describe how their maestro expresses his deep and abiding faith in his fellow Filipino artists, saying Shroder is 'acutely aware' on how "Filipino orchestra musicians here in Southern California have long dreamed of founding a Filipino symphony orchestra not only for the Filipino community, but for everybody who appreciates music."
Shroder has made emphatic what is central to the nature of FASO's music: it is classical. Hence, he has included more classical Filipino music like the kundiman, along with pop and contemporary pieces including those from famous Broadway performances.
This is the reason why Shroder, the maestro, has included the kundiman on Faso's repertoire.
Returning to the conductor himself, Shroder, in the eighties, won the Grand Prize in the National Music Competition for Young Artists; even in his youth, he was the principal flutist of the oldest symphony orchestra in Asia, the Manila Symphony Orchestra.
Before joining the Faso, Shroder served as the conductor of the Boyle Heights Youth Symphony of L.A. Shroder's work in the Los Angeles area has been legend. He has been a free lance musician, member of Local 47, the American Federation of Musicians.
He avers that there has been a tendency of Filipino musicians to join non-Filipino orchestras because there hasn't been any orchestra organized such as the Faso. His confidence in the Filipino as an orchestra member is unshaken. "We don't have any lack for Filipino talents here; we can form a 55-120 man orchestra with strings - violin, cello, double bass - and wind - flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, trumpet, trombones."
Interestingly, Faso has welcomed non-Filipinos because the organization's leadership is aware of the "presence of Filipinos in orchestras formed by other nationals' groups in the U.S." It was strongly felt that as long as Faso has a "core" group of Filipinos (it is now 90 percent), the welcome is extended to musicians from other ethnicities. Likewise, Shroder augments Faso's welcome to high school and college students as "long as they can play a musical instrument.
