Robert deMaine
Cello

Robert deMaine became Principal Cello in the Los Angeles Philharmonic in the 2013-14 season. Since 2002, Mr. deMaine has been Principal Cello of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. A fourth-generation string player, Mr. deMaine was born in Oklahoma City to a military and musical family of French and Polish extraction. He was introduced to the cello at the age of four by his mother and sister, both accomplished cellists. A Catholic priest, Father Ernest Flusché, provided sponsorship which enabled him to pursue his studies as a teenager with Leonard Rose at Juilliard Pre-College, after which he attended the Meadowmount School, the Eastman School of Music, the Piatigorsky Seminar in Los Angeles, Music Academy of the West in Santa Barbara, the Marlboro School and Festival, and Yale University on full-tuition fellowships (graduating with high distinction from Eastman and with the school's highest honor, the Performer's Certificate). DeMaine also studied at the University of Southern California and the Kronberg Academy in Germany.
