Reese Project (Tom Reese-Flute/Winds, Laurie Haines Reese-Cello, and Kirk Reese-Piano/Keyboards) is a GRAMMY nominated group of musicians and educators from Central Pa. In addition to performing, they are all educators at heart, with experience from elementary school through the college level teaching. For the past 15 years, Tom & Laurie have taught improvisation to elementary-aged string players at Strings Excell Camp, and Kirk and Laurie have experience teaching at the college level. Tom, Kirk & Laurie worked with the PA council on the Arts doing residencies and workshops with all levels of players and ages. More information can be found at ReeseProject.com.

Their sound is a blend of Classical, Jazz, Rock, Folk and World music, incorporating improvisation into written arrangements of traditional folksongs, standards (from the Great American Songbook), and classic pop/rock tunes.


This is a wonderful time for you to take advantage of this opportunity to work with these versatile musicians.
