Boston’s Handel and Haydn Society has appointed REGINALD MOBLEY to the newly created position of programming consultant. Mobley, currently director of the Handel and Haydn Society’s “Every Voice” program and a classically trained countertenor, will work to diversify the organization’s programming and reach new audiences.

A native of Florida, Mobley studied at the University of Florida in Gainesville and Florida State University in Tallahassee. He was a member of the Seraphic Fire ensemble and has appeared with symphonies and at festivals across the world. His most recent recording projects include an all-Handel disc with Bach Akademie Stuttgart, and a recording of duets by Agostino Steffani with harpsichordist Jory Vinikour. Mobley has worked in musical theater, performing cabaret shows of gospel, jazz, and torch songs in jazz clubs around Tokyo.
