Such organizations as the West Virginia Symphony and the West Virginia Opera Theatre have often appreciated his expertise.  As an adjunct professor he taught Choral Conducting at MU. Dale is well known and appreciated in the musical community for his many services to the Huntington area.  Another of his outreach activities is sponsoring an Indonesian child with Compassion International.
