Kelly Covert, second flute/ piccolo, has been with Symphoria for 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 and is also a member of Dolce Flutes, a professional flute quartet based in Syracuse. Ms. Covert is currently Instructor of Flute at Syracuse University and Hamilton College. She has also taught at Ithaca College and SUNY Oswego.
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 play beautiful music as her profession.
Not only is Kelly a musician, but also she owns a whole body health coaching company, Strong Body Whole Heart, and hosts a weekly audio podcast by the same name. She is also an ironman triathlete and coach.
Kelly loves living in Syracuse with her husband, Kelly, and two sons, Ryan and Noah.
