About Jacob Reed

Jacob Reed recently became the first student ever to receive a simultaneous BA/MA in musicology from Yale University (double-major in mathematics), studying harpsichord with Arthur Haas and organ with Thomas Murray. In the fall, he will begin graduate studies in organ performance with Martin Jean at the Yale School of Music.

Jacob was a 2013 U.S. Presidential Scholar, and was selected as a 2013 YoungArts National Finalist by the National YoungArts Foundation – one of 152 finalists out of nearly 10,000 applicants, and the only organist among the 19 classical musicians.

Over the past several years, he has given recitals across the United States, Europe, and Canada. In addition to his solo, ensemble and church service playing as an organist, Jacob has also performed frequently as a soloist, accompanist, and chamber musician on piano, harpsichord, and viola da gamba. Since matriculating at Yale, he has been a member of the Yale Temperament Viol Consort, instrumentalist and vocalist for the Yale Collegium Musicum, and first harpsichordist for the Yale Baroque Opera Project. Jacob was an artist-in-residence as organist and pianist at the 2016 Uncommon Music Festival in Sitka, Alaska, and will return to Sitka in 2017.
