ABOUT ANDREW

A Jamaican native, ANDREW MARSHALL has been active as a musician for over two decades. He is the Choir Director at The Winsor School in Boston, Massachusetts.

His creative output spans a broad range of genres and musical forces. Among his orchestral output are four symphonies for orchestra: Run-A-Boat, NyabinghiKongkongkraba and Fourteen. He has also completed and premiered extended pieces for mixed choir using text from the Jamiekan Nyuu Testiment, such as Jiizas a-go Baan (2018); Jiizas Pashan azkaadn tu Matyu (2019); and most recently, Di Apasl Paal: Wen Im Tun Wan Biliiva (2020).

Andrew has arrangements and compositions in his 

portfolio varying in difficulty, genres, styles, and performing forces. Some examples of these may be found below in the Books & Music tab.

For over fifteen years Andrew served as music director and accompanist for Maranatha Ministries, a dramatic musical ensemble led by his mother, Jacqueline Marshall. During his tenure with the group, Andrew completed two tours to England and Wales, and multiple tours across the United States and Jamaica.

In 2010 Andrew founded and has since directed the Jamaica Choral Scholars’ Festival, an annual event that underscores the creation and performance of Caribbean choral works. Since its inception Andrew has commissioned Caribbean-centric anthems, and edited existing choral works for performance, including Lisa Narcisse’s First Jamaican Mento Mass, Second Jamaican Mento Mass; and Samuel Felsted’s oratorio Jonah.

 

Andrew received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Northern Caribbean University (Mandeville, Jamaica), a Master of Music degree from Westminster Choir College of Rider University (Princeton, New Jersey), and a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the University of Oklahoma (Norman, Oklahoma). Andrew also holds an Advanced Certificate in Piano Performance from the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM). 

​Andrew is actively engaged in writing compositions and arrangements in a variety of styles and idioms, including pop acapella pieces and extended works. Contact Andrew at marshalla16@hotmail.com to request a commission for your group.
