Jeff Weisner (National Symphony double bassist and former Contrabass Conversations guest, and a regular contributor to doublebassblog.org) let me know that Ira Gold (also a National Symphony double bassist and former Contrabass Conversations guest) will be joining the Peabody Conservatory double bass faculty this fall.
The Peabody Double Bass Department welcomes the appointment of Ira Gold to the bass faculty. Mr. Gold is a member of the National Symphony Orchestra and on the faculty of the Catholic University of America in Washington, DC. He will join the current faculty, Paul Johnson and Jeffrey Weisner, along with Artist in Residence Harold Robinson.
