Karen Kevra has won attention as one of the country's outstanding flutists through her distinctive warm and extroverted performances as a soloist and chamber musician, and has been hailed as "having a musical focus and depth seen in few flutists anywhere."
Kevra's commitment to expanding the modern flute repertoire includes the premier recording of works by Louis Moyse (Works for flute and Piano of Louis Moyse-CRI CD888) which earned a 2003 Grammy nomination and accolades from numerous American reviewers. Fanfare Magazine called the disc, "A must for flute fanciers and anyone else with ears.", and Classics Today.com gave it a top 10/10 rating and awarded it "Disc of the Month". Romantic Music for Flute and Piano, her latest CD was praised by the Boston Musical Intelligencer for "sublimely satisfying flute-playing."
Kevra has performed throughout the U.S., Canada, and Europe including performances at Carnegie Hall, the French Embassy in Washington D.C., and on French National Television, and has shared the stage with Jaime Laredo, the Paris Piano Trio, Trio Pasquier, Borromeo String Quartet, Boston Chamber Music Society, and Trey Anastasio of Phish. In demand as both a chamber musician and soloist, of her 2011 West Coast tour, The San Francisco Classical Voice called her ". . .a most excellent soloist. . .elegantly beautiful."
Kevra is the founder and Artistic Director of Capital City Concerts based in Montpelier, Vermont. When she's not playing the flute, you can find her at home preparing Middle Eastern feasts, digging in the garden, and listening to her beloved Red Sox on the radio.
