Band History:
Edward Gold was born in Brooklyn, New York, on July 25, 1936. He has a B.A. in music from New York City College and a Master of Music from Yale University. Among his piano teachers were Elise Braun-Barnett at the Henry Street Settlement Music School, Ellsworth Grumman at Yale, and Nadia Reisenberg at the Mannes College of Music. His composition studies at Yale were with Mel Powell and H.Leroy Baumgartner.

In 1963 he played a piano recital tour of Mexico under the U.S. Information Service and in 1994, played a recital of music by Louis Moreau Gottschalk on the Queen Elizabeth 2.

Among Mr. Gold's L.P. recordings for Musical Heritage Society are: "Gottschalk Piano Music" released in 1973 (MHS 1629); Piano Music of J.L.

In recent years, Mr. Gold has composed entirely on the computer and has sequenced his own music as well as the music of others, including Elgar, Schumann, Liszt, and Brahms.
