Treesa Gold began studying violin at age two with renowned Suzuki pedagogue, Alice Joy Lewis. She remained under the tutelage of Mrs. Lewis until she left for the Interlochen Arts Academy where she studied under Hal Grossman and received her High School Diploma. Mrs. Gold earned a Bachelor of Music and a Performer's Diploma with Paul Biss at Indiana University, during which, she won a national audition with the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra in New Orleans, where she played from 2004 to 2006. She frequently performs with the Richmond Symphony and other orchestras on the east coast. She has been given the honor of briefly taking on the studio of Alice Joy Lewis, teaching at Sound Encounters, the Ottawa Suzuki Strings Institute, the University of Evansville Suzuki Workshop with Carol Dallinger, the Augsburg College Suzuki Talent Education Workshop with Nancy Lokken, the Cedros-UP International Festival in Mexico City, and an orchestral excerpts class at the Brian Lewis Young Artist Program. She also enjoys a residency at the Omaha Conservatory of Music Summer Institute with Goldrush, an endeavor that melds a traditional rock band with instruments and techniques of the classical music world. She is a member of Rosette, Richmond's leading all-female string quartet. When Treesa is not performing, teaching, or practicing, she enjoys spending time with her husband, Matt (double bass player, and librarian with RSO), and her two amazing mini-princesses, Kit and Artemis.
