As a member of The Orchestra, Mr. Dixon performs with many of the world’s top musicians in concert venues across the globe including the Lucerne, Salzburg and Edinburgh Festivals, Carnegie Hall, the Musikverein in Vienna and The Orchestra’s home, Severance Hall. With his colleagues in The Orchestra he has performed on numerous audio and video recordings with artists including Music Director Franz Welser-Most, Pierre Boulez, Pierre-Laurent Aimard, Mitsuko Uchida and Measha Brueggergosman.

In 2011 Mr. Dixon served on the faculty of the Domaine Forget summer bass workshop alongside his former teacher, Paul Ellison. He has given master classes at the International Society of Bassists (ISB) Convention, the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, Duquesne University and others.

Mr. Dixon performs with the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE), including recent performances at the Mostly Mozart Festival at Lincoln Center and the world premier recording of John Adam’s Son of Chamber Symphony, conducted by the composer.
