As part of our Local Artist Spotlight series, we are thrilled to feature local composer, Kelsey Reinhart, in our upcoming concert: Sacred Poetry.
Mrs. Reinhart, currently serving in her 5th year of teaching, is thrilled to start her first year as head director at Lake Highlands Junior High School. She graduated from Texas Tech University in December 2017 with a Bachelor’s Degree of Music, including a double major in composition and music education. First published by TFS Music Publications in 2012 for her piece “Irish Blessing”, Mrs. Reinhart has since published various works with Hal Leonard Publications. Additionally, several of her pieces have been included in TCDA new music reading sessions. Mrs. Reinhart is tremendously grateful to have received the following prestigious awards: the 2017 Raymond W. Brock Student Composition Competition and the 2017 Ruth Boshkoff Composition Prize; where she was also commissioned to write a piece for the O.A.K.E. National Youth Choir.
As a product of Lake Highlands, Mrs. Reinhart was active in choir and band throughout her junior high and high school careers and is excited to be back home! When she is not teaching or composing, Mrs. Reinhart likes to spend time trying new restaurants and coffee shops with her husband or snuggling with her two cats, Porter and Luna.
You’ll have the opportunity to visit with Kelsey at either of our concerts:
