As director of music and organist at St. John’s, Scott directs our Royal School of Church Music-affiliated Youth Choir and our semi-professional Adult Choir. He also serves as artistic director of the Music at the Red Door concert series.
Cited by The American Organist magazine as infusing his music with “virtuosic flair and fire,” Scott’s performances, whether organ or piano, bring a unique emotional and spiritual inspiration to his audiences. In demand as a concert artist, Scott has traveled near and far, with appearances at the Piccolo Spoleto Festival in South Carolina, First Night Worcester (MA), and the Organ Masters Series in Nashua (NH). He has concertized in Germany and Switzerland, as well as in metro Boston and New York. Previously, he served as artistic director of the Music Alive! Concert Series, the a cappella chorus, Sacred Voices, and the South Hadley Chorale.
Scott has three CDs in current release—The Organ at Worship, and In Quiet Joy: Music of Advent and Christmas, and a CD of his piano compositions, entitled Peace. He also is featured on the CD, Great Organs of Worcester. Each of these CDs serve as a vehicle to raise money for various missions.
Scott’s greatest passion, however, is his work at St. John’s, where he sees music as a ministry and a real connecting point with the Sacred. Each person involved in our music ministry plays a role in helping others through the ups and downs of life by providing moments of solace and wonder through beautiful music. He loves to talk about all aspects of St. John’s, especially the music program, so feel free to be in touch!
