From 2008 to 2011 Dr. Reul was the President of the International Fasch Society; from 2015 to 2019 she served as Vice-President and will continue as a member-at-large on its Executive Board until 2023.

In early 2017, she co-edited the final issue of Understanding Bach, the peer-reviewed web journal of the Bach Network (BN); she is currently serving as a BN council member.

Study guides, assignment instructions, and lecture notes will be posted on the UR Courses website. NOTE: Attendance of local concerts featuring classical music is required.
