Thomas Dixon received a master’s degree in choral conducting at Georgia State University in May 2023. Alongside his choral graduate assistant duties at GSU, Thom also served as a music intern at Central Presbyterian Church, where he directed the Youth Choir and Geneva Handbell Ensemble. He will begin pursuing a doctor of musical arts in choral conducting at the University of Georgia this fall.
Prior to beginning graduate school, he was director of choirs at Orange County High School in Orange, Virginia for 13 years, where he conducted the treble choir, tenor and bass ensemble, and a mixed voice chamber ensemble. He has led choirs in performances in Washington DC, Carnegie Hall in NYC, and most recently, a 10-day tour of Italy.
In addition to public school teaching, he served on the music staff at Church of Our Saviour Episcopal in Charlottesville, VA. He sang in the Virginia Consort and served as president of their executive board.
He has a soft spot for retired racing greyhounds, houseplants, and adventuresome recipes. Thom loves the spirit of community that is created when singing with others. Thom and his husband Matt joined the OSUMC family in July 2023.
