Born, raised and educated in New York City, Ellert began his professional career as a bassoonist while still attending high school, performing with several small, semi-professional orchestras and making his first recording. After attending the Juilliard School, he toured with Mitch Miller and the Royal Winnipeg Ballet and then won a position as principal bassoon with the Israel Chamber Orchestra in Tel Aviv, Israel.
Since then, Ellert has worked with many more symphony, orchestra and philharmonic groups around the world. He co-founded and recorded five CDs with the Palm Beach Chamber Music Festival, four of which have already received critical acclaim. He has taught at at least five educational institutions and has been invited to do master classes for the University of Florida and the Israel Chamber Orchestra.
