Laurie Haines Reese

Laurie is dedicated to creating new music that features the cello. Improvisation is an important part of music, a part that allows each individual a chance to speak the music that is in their heart. An accomplished classical musician, Laurie loves the variety in performing jazz, folk and improvisatory music. From Lancaster, PA, Laurie has free-lanced & concertized extensively on the east coast, in Los Angeles, Miami, Seattle, Hawaii, New York & Europe. Currently the cellist for several ensembles, ranging from classical to jazz to celtic music.

She earned a Master of Music Performance degree from the University of Southern California. While in Los Angeles, she studied the advanced classical cello repertoire with Eleanor Schoenfeld. While in Miami, she studied at the University of Miami (Coral Gables, FL), earning a Bachelor in Music Performance. She played both classical & jazz, performing regularly with Ira Sullivan & Strings Attached. She also free-lanced extensively, playing in various symphony orchestras, doing studio work and working with a string quartet & a flute quartet.

Following her graduate work in Los Angeles, she went to Maui to work full-time as a professional musician. While there, she co-founded a trio called Chamber Jazz Maui, along with Jazlynn Woods & Tim O'Hara, that performed a variety of repertoire “from Bach to Beatles.” From there, she spent six months in Seattle, then ventured “back home” to Pennsylvania for what was supposed to be a short visit. Many years later, she is happily married (to composer/flutist Tom Reese) & is very happy hanging out with Tom & their three cats in her small town home.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
