In the summer, Allison is part of the horn faculty at the Sewanee Summer Music Festival, located on the beautiful campus of the University of the South in Sewanee, TN. In addition to his teaching and coaching duties at Sewanee, Allison also has the pleasure of performing chamber music with world-renowned faculty artists who come to teach there each summer.
