REECE SAUVÉ (MUSICAL DIRECTOR) is excited to be part of the music education program at Bainbridge Performing Arts! Over the past few years, he has garnered wide attention in niche circles for his work as a musical theatre director, pianist, vocalist, actor, and music teacher for all ages. His passion for performance quality is matched only by his passion for fun in the rehearsal process.
Reece studied piano performance and conducting at Willamette University and choral direction at Central Washington University. While at CWU, he co-founded the award-winning acapella ensemble Nada Cantata. Since its formation, the group has flourished and is now the flagship ensemble of an entire acapella program which thrives at the university entering its third generation of student-leadership.
His performance style is expressive, robust, and lends itself well to the dramatic nature of Musical Theatre. He exhibits a buoyant, magnetic energy in the rehearsal space and works hard to make sure that his students and casts are performing to their utmost potential when the curtain comes up.
His show credits as an actor include Company (Bobby), Peter Pan (Smee), and Wizard of Oz (Cowardly Lion). He has served as music and vocal director throughout Kitsap and Mason counties on titles including Into the Woods, Sweeney Todd, Evita, Annie and has lent his skills as an accompanist to shows such as Sound of Music, Urinetown, Ruthless!, and Pirates of Penzance.
When he isn’t rehearsing or performing, you’ll find Reece enjoying photography in the outdoors with his wife and their goofy dogs, swimming, experimenting in the kitchen, or playing board games with his friends.
