Feeling a bit camera shy


It is one thing to play a musical instrument, and yet another to live that instrument. Gretchen Yanover has been living the cello since she was 10 years old. This passionate obsession has persisted and (to our delight) born fruit.

Gretchen has played in the Northwest Sinfonietta since 1998, an acclaimed chamber orchestra based in the Pacific Northwest. She also freelances in various orchestras and ensembles such as the Boise Philharmonic and the Tacoma Symphony Orchestra. Gretchen has played with many varied string quartets. Her current quartet, the Modulation Consort, features Eyvind Kang and Jen Kozel. Outside of the “classical” music realm, Gretchen performs steadily. She has played in KD Lang’s orchestra and recorded with Built to Spill, Trwst, the Stares, and Tim Young. She spent a portion of the last two years performing and recording with the live drum & bass group, KJ Sawka.
In addition to her intense musical performing, Ms. Yanover also is an accomplished teacher. She teaches cello privately and teaches Orchestra and The Language of Music at the Northwest School in Seattle. She has been bringing music to children in public and private schools since 1998 when she received her teaching certificate and a BA in music at the University of Washington.
