Portrait of Jennifer Nitchman


Jennifer Nitchman

Jennifer Nitchman has held the position of Second Flute with the St. Louis Symphony since 2003. An active teacher, she has appeared as a guest artist and clinician at numerous institutions and flute festivals as well as maintaining a private flute studio in her home.

Nitchman has also performed with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, and Fort Wayne Philharmonic, as well as the Britt and Brevard Music Festivals. She previously held the position of Assistant Principal Flute with the United States Army Field Band in Washington, DC.

Nitchman lives in St Louis Hills with her husband and two cats. They are committed city residents who have renovated homes in two different neighborhoods. She also serves on the board of Tenth Life Cat Rescue, which prioritizes saving cats with special needs. You can follow the exploits of her blind cat Stevie on Instagram at @steviepeeperscat. When she isn’t playing the flute or trying to get you to adopt a cat, she enjoys cooking, obsessively reading cookbooks, trying to grow her own food, and traveling.
