John Thomas Dodson
American conductor, John Thomas Dodson’s concerts have been described as "phenomenal," with the press noting his "clear and communicative leadership on the podium" and describing his interpretations as displaying “jubilant intensity and great clarity.” Renowned conductor Iván Fischer called him "a fine musician and a very good conductor," and legendary French musician, Philippe Entremont described his conducting as "remarkable, sensitive, very precise. Making music together was all that mattered." Kurt Nikkanen, concertmaster of the New York City Ballet Orchestra at Lincoln Center called him, "one of the finest musicians I have encountered in the course of my musical career."
Dodson serves as as Artistic Director of Conciertos de la Villa de Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic and Music Director of the Lexington Bach Festival in Southeast Michigan.
