Countertenor David Dickey earned a Bachelor of Music degree in Voice Performance from the University of Maryland and is currently pursuing a Master of Music from the Juilliard School in Historical Performance, focusing on historical oboes. Dickey’s comedic talents have been praised by the Washington Post as being “a stitch!” in his role with the Maryland Opera Studio’s production of Benjamin Britten’s Albert Herring. He was recently mentioned by the New York Times as a “fine soloist” in his work with The Juilliard School’s period instrument ensemble Juilliard415.
A Washington D. C. native, he can be seen performing with groups such as The Washing National Cathedral and the Washington Bach Consort. Solo appearances have brought him in front of orchestras such as the Columbia Pro Cantare and the University of Maryland Repertoire Orchestra as well as to The National Collegiate Choral Organization. This coming May, Dickey will perform in the Boston Early MusicFestival at Jordan Hall with an all Bach program in collaboration between Juilliard415 and the Royal Academy of Music conducted by Masaaki Suzuki. The program will also be taken to Leipzig, Germany and London, England.
