Pianist Christopher Dillon debuted with the San Luis Obispo County Symphony at the age of 17. He pursued his education at the Eastman School of Music, the Oberlin Conservatory, and the Peabody Institute. While at Peabody, he studied with Julian Martin, Ellen Mack, and Robert McDonald. Dillon obtained his Doctorate in Music at Peabody Conservatory in 2002.
In addition to being a lecturer at the Peabody Conservatory from 1999 to 2003, he has been teaching theory and ear training at Towson University for more than eight years.
An active soloist and chamber musician, Dillon is also in demand as an accompanist. Recent performances include a lecture-recital at the University of Texas at San Marcos, on the correlation between light and sound in the late works of Alexander Scriabin, and a complete performance of J.S. Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier, Volume 2, performed from memory at Towson University. In addition to these interests, he is also a champion of new works.
