Karen Kevra, the founder and artistic director of Capital City Concerts, has won attention as one of the country's outstanding flutists through her distinctive warm and extroverted performances and has been hailed as "having a musical focus and depth seen in few flutists anywhere." Kevra's recording of Works for Flute and Piano by Louis Moyse earned a 2003 Grammy nomination and accolades from numerous American reviewers. Romantic Music for Flute and Piano, her latest CD with pianist Jeffrey Chappell, was praised by flutist Sir James Galway, and the Boston Musical Intelligencer for "sublimely satisfying flute-playing." Kevra has performed throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe including performances at Carnegie Hall, the French Embassy in Washington, DC, and on French National Television, She has shared the stage with members of the Emerson String Quartet, the Paris Piano Trio, Borromeo String Quartet, Boston Chamber Music Society, and Trey Anastasio of Phish. She lives in Cornwall, Vermont (with her athletic, engaging scientist husband) and divides her time between playing the flute, tending her massive vegetable garden, arranging and photographing flowers, and preparing feasts for family and friends.
