Reese has been on the music faculty at Messiah College since 1993, teaching jazz improvisation & piano.
Andy Roberts, keyboardist, arrived at his approach to music and composition thru the absorption of musical styles from various eras. His influences range from jazz greats Fats Waller, Bud Powell, and Chick Corea to rockers like Professor Longhair and Rick Wakeman. He incorporates all of these music genres into his own compositions and improvisations. Currently, Andy maintains a busy schedule of music directing, performing, and writing within many formats of the music world. He freelances around Central Pa and Philadelphia.
