Tom & Laurie Reese
The husband and wife team of Tom & Laurie Reese have fused their diverse backgrounds into a unique style featuring elements of classical, jazz, celtic & folk music and created a new sound they call "Folk Fusion". The duo's repertoire includes standards in jazz, classical, celtic and folk music in addition to originals.

They collaborate with an exciting group of musicians, including The Reese Project (jazz), Susquehanna (classical) & Wyndfall (folk & folk rock music). They have produced several award-winning CDs including a 2004 recording of their duo work, titled An Early Snow. A high level of musicianship combined with creativity launches MuZette into flights of musical fantasy.

This combination of an award-winning composer and a classically trained cellist engages audiences of all ages at festivals, art galleries, wineries, retirement centers, libraries and more.

In Pennsylvania they have performed at the Fulton Opera House, Lancaster, PA, Governor's Mansion, Harrisburg, PA, Mt. Gretna Outdoor Show, Reading Public Museum, State Capitol Building, Harrisburg, and The Whitaker Center for the Performing Arts, Harrisburg, PA to name a few.

Muzette has performed throughout Pennsylvania, Maryland, New York, Canada, Kansas City, Tulsa, Wisconsin, New Jersey, Florida and more.

Improvisation is key to their performances. Tom's background is in jazz; Laurie has a master's degree in classical cello performance. Combining their different musical backgrounds has led to a wide circle of performance opportunities. Traditional Irish & celtic tunes proved to be the initial meeting ground between Tom's jazz experience and Laurie's classical training. Not wanting to abandon their individual musical roots, however, Tom & Laurie each pursued their own voices, leading them to create several more ensembles. Each ensemble is unique, performing standards as well as originals.

PA Council on the Arts from 2002-2005. The Arts Council placed them into schools for residencies of up to ten days that included teaching music & composition, building instruments, and giving concerts & assemblies. They have developed several educational programs that have received outstanding marks on evaluations.

MuZette is a very popular choice for weddings, providing prelude material, music during the ceremony, and reception music. As acoustic musicians, they can set up just about anywhere and can move to a separate location with ease. Their instruments were designed to project without amplification and their sound is gorgeous in churches as well as outdoors. They also provide background music for company receptions, anniversary parties, holiday gatherings or other events. A lecture/demo can be added to any concert or performance.
