Treesa Gold is a vibrant performer in the Richmond area, performing frequently with chamber groups as well as ensembles outside of the Richmond Symphony: she holds the titles of concertmaster of the Opera On The James and assistant principle second of the Williamsburg Symphonia.

Treesa 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.

Mrs. Gold is also a passionate teacher with a strong belief in children’s potential and the importance that plays in the betterment of the world. She runs the Richmond Area Suzuki Strings as well as the Treesa Gold Suzuki Studio.

She has been given the honor of teaching at many festivals nationwide, and she made her international teaching debut at the Cedros International Suzuki Festival in Mexico City. Treesa Gold also enjoys a residency at the Omaha Conservatory of Music Summer Institute with her rock band, Goldrush, an endeavor that melds a traditional rock band with instruments and techniques of the classical music world.

When Treesa is not teaching or performing she enjoys playing with her rescue dogs, hiking, running and traveling with her favorite bass player (and librarian with the Richmond Symphony), her husband, Matt Gold.
