Taste and elegant music making as a conductor and pianist, along with substantial and colorful programming, and a winning stage charm are all in his magnetic spectrum.
His impressive musical achievements encompass all facets of symphony, opera, ballet, pops, and concert piano throughout the United States, Europe, and in Asia, even extending to the creation and production of new and exciting musical events for all audiences. From Beethoven in Blue Jeans, to a musical laser sci-fi show for 10,000, to his adventurous programming for educational concerts, or a colorful kaleidoscope of repertoire for orchestral seasons, John Covelli makes familiar music fresh and full of vitality and new music sing to the heart.
Drawing upon a wealth of performing experience, Covelli is now offering a very special selection of new and unique events to orchestras for their concert-going audiences. Multi-media concerts such as Music and the Magical Brain for youth and family ; Sci-Fi Nite at the Symphony for new and popular audiences (featuring excerpts from the golden age of the 50's and 60's classic sci-fi cult films from the Wade Williams Collection) ; and "A Symphony Space Odyssey" among others. He is also very highly recommended by Classical Kids as conductor and pianist for "Beethoven Lives Upstairs" performances.
