Minister of Music: Dr. Heather Reichgott
Heather Reichgott grew up dancing around the living room to the sounds of her mother playing Beethoven. She has been playing the piano ever since she grew tall enough to reach it. Heather began accompanying at age 10 for her fifth grade chorus, played chamber music and accompanied musical theatre and church services while in high school, and was awarded the Certificate for Excellence in Concerto Performance by Seymour Bernstein at the Seattle Young Artists Music Festival. While she was a student at Oberlin College she filled in for accompanists at local churches and began accompanying for ballet classes at Ohio Dance Theatre in order to afford to take class herself.
Today, in addition to serving as Minister of Music at the South Hadley Methodist Church, Heather is the accompanist for Da Camera Singers, teaches piano to over 30 students in a thriving private Suzuki piano studio and at Bay Path University, enjoys an active and varied career as a performer locally, playing everything from classical concerts to musical theatre, and is also a staff accompanist at Boston Ballet School.
Heather’s recordings include an album of ballet class music, A Musical Feast for Ballet Class (2011), and an album of music by contemporary composers, Preludes, Problems & Prayers (2014). All her recordings are available on cdbaby.com.
Heather has a daughter and lives in South Hadley.
