A true Renaissance woman, Reid navigates between the stringent shores of classical music and the uninhibited banks of jazz. A longtime member of multiple local ensembles, her own dedicated quartet released its first album in 2015, establishing her as a leader of rare vision and audacity. She’s been a constant and invigorating presence at venues like Constellation and festivals like Ear Taxi. And that’s just in her hometown; she’s in demand on a national level, too.
