General Info


Instructor of Choral Studies

As a choral conductor and teacher, my aim is to empower students to achieve their potential through informed musicianship, engaged communication, and impassioned singing.

Nathan Reiff joined the Conservatory in 2017, and is an instructor of choral studies. Reiff teaches choral literature and, alongside George Case, conducts the Boston Conservatory Women's Chorus and Chorale.

Reiff's work as a conductor has brought him before ensembles representing some of the broad diversity of the choral world, including the Young People's Chorus of New York City, the Yale Glee Club, and the Ann Arbor Cantata Singers. As a candidate for the Doctor of Musical Arts degree at Yale University, Reiff's scholarly projects focused on the intersection of polystylism and incrementalism in Alfred Schnittke's Concerto for Choir. Alongside his work at the Conservatory, Reiff serves as resident conductor of the Harvard Glee Club and voice teacher in the Holden Voice Program at Harvard.

Reiff holds the M.M. in choral conducting from the University of Michigan and the B.A. in music with distinction from Yale University. His primary teachers of conducting have included Jerry Blackstone, Marguerite Brooks, Jeffrey Douma, and David Hill.
