Fairbanks Tall Timbers Lecture: Theresa Reed


The Fairbanks Tall Timber Series honors those who have served the Fairbanks community well. Join veteran newsman Robert Hannon as he interviews Theresa Reed.

Theresa Reed is a retired music teacher, performer, theatrical costumer, and strong advocate for the arts. She and her late husband, Bill, helped found the Fairbanks Light Opera Theatre. She served on their board of directors at various times and was the stage director for many productions. Currently, she helps organize the very large FLOT costume collection, which is available for loan. Theresa was one of the original founders of Opera Fairbanks and served as the costume designer for most of their productions. She was on the Fairbanks Summer Arts Festival board for 22 years. In 2006 she was named one of the Farthest North Girl Scout Council’s "Women of Distinction" and has received the Interior Mayors' Award for the Arts Lifetime Achievement Award twice. Directing the choir at Christ Lutheran Church, a weekly singalong at the Pioneer Home, and being a fill-in driver for Meals on Wheels helps fill her days.
