Highland’s Chorister Choir (grades K-5th gr) and Children’s Handbell Choir will welcome church musician and composer, Jeff Reeves, to Louisville the weekend of April 19-21! We will enjoy Pizza and Practice with Jeff on Friday night and singing in worship on Sunday, April 21. The choristers are learning to sing and ring his anthems and bell arrangements for our Spring Recognition Service on Sunday evening, May 19, 6:00 p.m.

Jeff Reeves serves as Choral Music Editor with Hal Leonard Corporation in Milwaukee. In his role at Hal Leonard, Jeff serves as the primary editor for the Discovery Choral Series and the Shawnee Press sacred choral catalog for children, Worship Songs Junior.

In this position, Jeff coordinates and directs choral and handbell choirs for children in pre-kindergarten through 6th grade. Since 1990, Jeff has specialized in the field of church music for children. His work in both the music publishing industry and the local church has given him the unique opportunity to understand the needs of children’s choirs within the larger ecumenical community. He is the author of numerous publications including children’s music curriculum materials, teaching articles, as well as choral and handbell works for children of all ages. Jeff holds a Bachelor of Music degree from Oklahoma Baptist University and a Master of Church Music degree from Southern Theological Seminary.
