Most people are lucky to have one job they can tolerate. Dr. Scott W. Dorsey has two careers that he adores: Aviation and Choral Music.
As a choral conductor, Scott has performed extensively in the U.S. and overseas, with choirs under his baton earning critical acclaim. As a collegiate music professor, he has served on numerous music faculties, including those at Montana State University-Billings, Mount Union College, the University of Northern Iowa, Vennard College, and William Penn College. He also served the choral art on the national staff of the American Choral Directors Association (ACDA) as the Director of Education & Communication. An accomplished writer, he has published several hundred articles in various choral publications and produced a variety of one-of-a-kind resources.
Beyond his choral endeavors, Scott is also a professional aviator. A commercial multi-engine pilot and flight instructor, he is currently flying for the Sundance Flight Academy and Twin Lakes Aviation, both located at Sundance Airpark (HSD) in Oklahoma City. Melding scholarship with his fondness for things with wings, Scott has published aviation articles in Private Pilot and Plane & Pilot magazines.
