Described by composers Drew Krause and Libby Larsen as "Awesome!" and "Thrilling"; Saxophonist Kim Reece’s ability to make contemporary music more readily visible and understood by audiences has made her an emerging voice in today’s music scene.
A graduate from the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University, the University of Arizona and Lawrence University, Reece has achieved great success both as a solo and chamber musician. Highlights from her educational career include the premiere of Bei Zhang’s Alborado for soprano saxophone and electronics which won second prize at the Prix d’Ete at the Peabody Institute; Solo performances at the Peabody Institute Commencement ceremony and the LU Commencement concert, and debut performance as winner and soloist at the 2006 Lawrence University Concerto Competition. In addition, Reece’s chamber music highlights include her debut recording in the soprano saxophone chair of the Catalina Quartet which can be heard on the Arizona University Recordings’ CD release America's Millennium Tribute to Adolphe Sax: Volume XIV.
Reece currently lives in Portland, OR where she serves on the faculty at Portland State University and Reed College. Primary teachers include, Steven Jordheim, Gary Louie, Timothy McAllister and Joe Wimmer.
