Beverly McAmis Reese has been interested in music from an early age, started piano at age 6 and continued on through college years. While raising her children there was not much time or opportunity for music but 20 years later became interested in learning the pipe organ here in Casper. Ten years of private lessons with Donna McIntire and testing through 3 certifications with the American Guild of Organists has brought great joy in serving 3 congregations – First Presbyterian, St. Mark’s Episcopal and the Anglican Church of the Resurrection. Beverly is a regular recitalist for the Bach’s Lunch Organ Recital Series and teaches private piano to children and adults.
