Kelly Covert, second flute/ piccolo, has been with Symphoria since the 2013-14 season. A graduate of the University of Georgia and Ithaca College in flute performance, she has performed with Cayuga Chamber Orchestra, Binghamton Philharmonic, Ensemble X and in solo and chamber music concerts across the county. She is a core performer with the Syracuse Society for New Music. Ms. Covert is currently Instructor of Flute at Syracuse University and has also taught at Ithaca College, SUNY Oswego, and Hamilton College.
One of Kelly’s fondest memories from before she started to play the flute was putting markers together end-to-end to “practice”. She considers Symphoria to be such a great gift because she gets to sit on stage with so many talented musicians and make beautiful music as her profession.
In addition to being a musician, Kelly is also a life coach and hosts the In Her Voice podcast. She loves to read, do crossfit, and snuggle with her adorable beagle, Piper.
Kelly loves living in Syracuse with her husband, Kelly, and two sons, Ryan and Noah.
