Reilly has studied organ with Jimrae Lenser since he was 9 years old, and previously served as organist in Sloatsburg United Methodist Church. During recent years, he has been under tutelage of organist Craig Williams. In addition, Reilly is in the Pre-College organ program at the Juilliard School of Music, studying with Dr. Matthew Lewis.

Reilly is very excited to come back to St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church for his second recital, and to participate in the wonderful “Second Saturday” event in Beacon.
