Jelka Weber, who had her first flute lessons at the age of eight, began her studies with Hermann Klemeyer at the Munich Musikhochschule in 1990. During her training she was already playing as a substitute in the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra. As a scholar of the Berliner Philharmoniker’s Orchestra Academy from 1994-96, she was coached by Andreas Blau. In 1996 the Magdeburg Philharmonic engaged her as principal flute; the following year she moved to the Berliner Philharmoniker. Jelka Weber is also active as a soloist and a member of the Ensemble Berlin and the Orsolino Quintet.
