    Dear Friends,

    Perhaps the opportunity of international travel combined with music making has shaped my life as a professional musician as much as any other experience. Seeing the world through other cultures and singing in some of the globes great venues are life-changing experiences, whatever your career path. I hope you will consider singing with me while we explore the enchanting cities of Vienna and Salzburg.

    JOHN DICKSON

    John Dickson is the Edward G. and Catherine M. Galante Chair for Choral Music Education at Louisiana State Universitys School of Music. As Director of Choral Studies and Chair of the Division of Ensembles and Conducting, he conducts the internationally acclaimed A Cappella Choir and supervises the masters and

    doctoral programs in choral conducting. He continues as the founding artistic director and conductor of Coro Vocati, one of Atlantas newest and most accomplished professional chamber choirs.

    Internationally known as a conducting pedagogue, Dr. Dickson has presented master-classes before the Association of British Choral Directors and the Russian State Music Conservatories of St. Petersburg and Moscow, and has served as adjudicator and conductor for choral festivals and workshops in England, Wales, Scotland, Finland, France, and Canada. His choirs have been featured at numerous state, regional, and national ACDA conventions and he is a frequent conductor for All-State choruses.

    Appointed as a Visiting Fellow of Wolfson College, Cambridge University, Dr. Dickson sang with Sir David Willcocks and The Bach Choir in London. A second post-doctoral fellowship allowed him to serve as David Hills assistant conductor for The Bach Choir. Dr. Dickson is also the Founding Director of the C. S.
