Peabody is pleased to announce the appointment of Harold Hall Robinson, principal bass of the Philadelphia Orchestra and instructor at the Curtis Institute, as Peabody Artist-Faculty in Residence. Beginning in Fall 2009, he will join current Peabody double bass faculty faculty Paul Johnson and Jeffrey Weisner in this newly created position. Mr. Robinson will visit Peabody multiple times over the course of the year for day-long classes, presentations and intensive group lessons with Peabody bass students. Each student will work collaboratively with both their primary teacher and Mr. Robinson to develop their own artistry and musicianship.
As a result of this new appointment, application deadlines have been extended for the 2009-2010 academic year. Please contact Peabody Admissions for more information.
We’ll have more news on this appointment soon, both at PBDB and on our official school website. Feel free to email any of us in the meantime if you have questions.
