John Reeder – board member

 

A lifelong Californian, John was raised in Pasadena before attending Stanford University. There he sang with the Stanford University Chorus, including performances with the San Francisco Symphony at the War Memorial Auditorium, under direction of Joseph Kripps and Seiji Ozawa.

He attended UC Davis School of Medicine, earned his MD, and pursued specialty training in Pediatrics prior to establishing his practice in Grass Valley. After 36 years of providing Pediatric care in this community, he retired from medical practice in 2017.

Now his time is filled with Cycling, Woodworking, and working together with his wife Gwendy to maintain their forested property. Becoming a member of the Sierra Master Chorale adds to a lifetime enjoyment of music that has included playing acoustic guitar and participating in various other small choral groups over the years.
