Joy Britt Reavis — pianist, composer and performer

People are always encouraged to share their talents with others. Pianist, composer and performer Joy Britt Reavis is a prime example of one who does that on a consistent basis. Native to the Piedmont Triad area, Reavis is currently fulfilling her musical aspirations after a 15-year hiatus from writing. “This is a great time in my life,” Reavis says. “I feel like I have a great opportunity to give back.” Aside from being a musician, Reavis is also a wife, a mother and a full-time employee at Pfizer pharmaceutical company. Her new CD entitled Expressions of Joy displays her musical prowess through original compositions. A portion of her proceeds will be donated to the iCan House, an organization that provides social learning opportunities for children and adults with social and developmental challenges. “Hopefully I can offer some inspiration and relaxation to people who need it.” You can catch Joy Britt Reavis performing in Greensboro at Café Pasta on April 7 and Studio B on May 6.
