Interesting and so very cooooool.... One of the 3 main buildings at Sonoma State University's new performing arts center may be named for Schroeder, the Beethoven-loving pianist of "Peanuts." The campus officials have proposed naming the 250 seat recital hall for the cartoon character because the widow of Charles M. Schultz donated $5 million toward the project which will be part of the Green Music Center (according to Susan Kashack of Sonoma State).
Jean Schultz, the widow of Charles Schultz sated that "I know Sparky would have enjoyed thinking about Schroeder's connection to such a grand hall and stage. Sparky was Charles Schultz nickname.
This IS A HAPPY STORY : ) and that ain't Peanuts : )
