Gretchen Yanover

Locally grown cellist Gretchen Yanover began playing cello in Seattle Public Schools. She earned a BA in Music Performance and her Washington Teaching Certificate from UW. Gretchen won a position in NW Sinfonietta Orchestra on the same day she taught her first string orchestra classes. Embracing an interwoven path of teaching and performing, Ms Yanover enthusiastically guided students on string instruments in public and private school classrooms for 17 years, while continuing to grow her solo music career. During those years, she experienced the life-changing events of the loss of her brother and the birth of her daughter, shifting her perspective and priorities. Gretchen moved her focus from teaching to solo performing in 2016, and continues to compose works with her electric cello and looping pedal. She has 3 solo albums to date.
