New Peabody Faculty-Artist in Residence Harold Robinson

Here is the official announcement from our Peabody website:

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.

We'll have more news on this appointment and what it means for the Peabody bass program soon, both here and on our official website. Feel free to email any of us in the meantime if you have questions.
