Evan Shelton is an experienced performer and teacher of all ages and musical styles. He holds a Cello Performance degree from Colorado State University and a graduate degree in Suzuki Pedagogy from the Lamont School of music at the University of Denver. He was a member of the rock band Other Side of Clearview, which allowed him to branch out of the classical world and learn how to perform and teach rock, pop, and jazz forms.
As a cellist Evan has performed with the cello section of the Colorado Symphony, the Indigo Girls, Amos Lee, Deltron 3030, Chuck Profit and Pretty Lights, and has played in such venues as the First Bank Center, Fiddlers Green, Boettcher Concert Hall, and Red Rocks Amphitheater.
He is currently a cellist in the Cheza String Quartet, the lecturer of Cello at the University of Colorado Denver, the cello instructor at the Colorado College in Colorado Springs and the cello improvisation instructor for Denver Talent Education.
