Scott is in the process of receiving his Bachelor’s degree from Northwestern University, where he studies with Gail Williams and Jonathan Boen. Before attending Northwestern, he attended Lake Ridge High School, was a member of the Greater Dallas Youth Orchestra, and studied with David Heyde. Scott was a member of the Civic Orchestra of Chicago for the 2021-2022 Season and has performed at the Tanglewood Music Center, the Aspen Music Festival, and with NYO-USA. He has also performed with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra.

Passions/Interests:
Rock climbing, Spikeball, and cooking steak.

"Since the summer of 2020, I've been very involved with committees, projects, and causes geared toward making our art form more accessible, equitable, inclusive, and reflective of our ever-changing society, and I'm looking forward to continuing that work here in any way that I can help."

Career Highlights:
"No question, winning my job in Sarasota is the biggest highlight of my career," Scott says. "Another highlight was performing Strauss' Alpine Symphony in the summer of 2019 at Carnegie Hall and at the BBC Proms."

Written byHerald Tribune

A lifetime of musical moments, cinematic in scope, gave every section of the orchestra a leading role at one time or another. Chief among them was the virtuosic solo of concertmaster Daniel Jordan.

It was a thrill ride resulting in an explosion of audience enthusiasm.
