Udo Schreiber * 1953 lives and works as a music teacher, composer, arranger, lyricist and accordionist.
One of his goals is to keep the accordion in folk music as well as in classical music. Thanks to clever arrangements, beginners and advanced players have a place on the stage.
With his music he has already traveled to many continents with students and left behind many a social project. As in Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay, USA, Canada, Belarus, Poland, France, South Africa and Namibia ...
Social objects were left almost everywhere. For example:
In Minsk, two houses for large families were built in an unexposed zone with Pastor von Bodelschwingh (after the reactor accident in Chernobyl);
in Cape Town, container houses were built in one of the many poor areas (for kindergarten and sewing room);
In Namibia there has been the "Omaruru Private Circle of Friends" aid organization since 2008.

With Abi Ofarim (from Duo Ester and Abi Ofarim), the Russian Ensemble Täsch, the Minsk Children's Choir Zhurawinka and many, many others, he toured through German and Belarusian cities for the benefit of the Chernobyl Children's Aid.
For Heinz Rühmann he wrote the song Dreams from Youth. It was the chosen title of a general announcement. It was never published because Heinz Rühmann died before the studio recordings were finished.
Together with his wife they ran the Schreiber music school and wrote the Lustical The Westphalian Wedding Dream for the Shakespeare theater "Globe Theater" in Rheda-Wiedenbrück.
For LGS Rietberg, there was also the later award-winning wedding dream for children.
