Dr. John Marshall, Strings Conductor

Spokane Youth Strings conductor, Dr. John Marshall, is the Director of Orchestra/Professor of Cello at  Eastern Washington University.  In addition to his teaching at EWU, Marshall performs over 60 concerts a year as principal cellist with the Spokane Symphony Orchestra.  During the summer, Marshall teaches cello and chamber music at the Interlochen Arts Camp.

Dr. Marshall holds degrees from three of the most prestigious music schools in the country: a BM from Indiana University, an MM from Yale University, and a DM from Northwestern University. At these schools Marshall studied with some of the most distinguished cellists in the world: Janos Starker, Aldo Parisot, and Hans Jensen. Marshall strives to combine the varying strengths of these three pedagogues into his own teaching methods. His doctoral dissertation focused on compositions for two cellos and orchestra.

In 2001, Marshall initiated the CELLObration Spokane festival. Now an annual event at EWU, CELLObration brings together over 50 student and professional cellists from all over the Northwest for a day of learning and performing music for cello ensemble.
