  • Scott Cossu, Piano and Holly Reeves, Cello
    Scott Cossu is an internationally known, composer, pianist and recording artist. He was up front when New Age was just beginning over 30 years ago. He was one of the first Windham Hill Artists to join with founders Will Ackerman and Alex Degrassi on their new label out of Palo Alto, California. Scott signed onto the label the same day as Michael Hedges and they both joined George Winston who was new to the label himself. Scott affectionately call his music Heavy Mental or Cosmic National Geographic, even though he was one of the grandfathers of the New Age scene. Much of Scott’s work exhibits departures from the New Age field and includes a melodic blend of jazz, classical and ethnic influences. He has enjoyed great success at the top of the jazz charts and has sold out shows from England to Japan, Chile and Germany. Scott now lives here in the Northwest, surrounded with the beauty the area has to offer, and content with his family and his musician’s life of peforming, touring and composing. He is performing Friday with cellist Holly Reeves. Holly Reeves is well-known to Olympia concert-goers as principal cellist of the Olympia Symphony Orchestra. This year marks her twenty-first season with the group. She is also a long-time member of the Tacoma-based chamber orchestra Northwest Sinfonietta. An experienced chamber musician, Holly has performed throughout the United States and in Canada, Costa Rica, France, Switzerland, Great Britain, Japan, and most recently, Italy. Holly has been a featured soloist with the Olympia Symphony and has appeared several times on the Governor’s Mansion series and the Abbey series at Saint Martin’s University. She is a sought-after teacher in the area and maintains a busy private studio. Originally from the Kansas City area, Holly holds a Bachelor of Music degree from the Eastman School of Music and a Master of Music degree from the University of California Santa Barbara.
