Celly Green (born 2001) is an Austrian saxophonist who discovered her passion for music at the age of 6. At the same age, she started playing the violin at the Beethoven Music School, and at 14, she switched to the saxophone.

Since 2019, she has been studying saxophone instrumental and vocal pedagogy with a focus on composition and production, as well as elementary music education at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna. She received lessons from Gabi Riegler, Wolfgang Puschnig, Markus Harm, and had teaching practice and didactics with Klaus Dickbauer, Martin Fuss, and Harald Huber. She has played in several bands, including Freischwimma, Aesculap Company, Streetband, and many others.

In addition to the saxophone, she plays the flute, clarinet, and sings. With her broad repertoire spanning jazz, funk, blues, R&B, disco, pop, to deep house, she entertains people at various events, including weddings, parties, and other private gatherings. In 2023, she worked as a musician on the cruise ship "MS Europa 2" for two months. With her jazz trio, she entertains guests in bars, cafes, and hotels.

She also works as a studio musician and has contributed to projects for Esther Olivia and other artists. For several years, she has been teaching children and adults saxophone, flute, piano, and also offers elementary music courses for children.

Currently, she is involved in building some projects in the funk and popular music genre and is working on her project "Green Loops." In 2022, she received a scholarship from the "Soroptimists" in Mödling for her composition "Loopidity." In this piece, she expresses the breaking free from the monotony of everyday life, which many experienced during the pandemic. Confusion, ideas, diminished desire, and isolation were themes that inspired the composition.
