Kely Pinheiro is a Brazilian multi-instrumentalist and arranger based in Boston. She moved to the U.S. after receiving a full-tuition scholarship from Berklee College of Music. She is a classically trained cellist but grew up in a music-loving family that encouraged her to explore a variety of musical styles. She has performed in concert since she was 12 years old, participating in projects and festivals in Brazil and abroad. Her first professional tour was in 2017, playing Brazilian music throughout Germany with Rio's popular string orchestra Camerata Laranjeiras. Her most recent tour was in the fall of 2018 backing up Norwegian singer Astrid S, which led Pinheiro to be noticed by Norway's largest newspaper, Aftenposten. Pinheiro majors in performance and contemporary writing and production at Berklee, collaborating with multiple artists and working on a solo show featuring her cello and voice.
