Organist, pianist, conductor, and composer K.

Mander Organ Recital series. He is conductor of the professional 16-voice Choir of St. Ignatius Loyola in addition to overseeing a program of six volunteer and children's choirs. In recital and at weekly masses Scott may be heard on the 5,000 pipe, 30 ton, 45 foot high N.P. Mander Organ, the largest tracker-action pipe organ in the New York metropolitan area. Before assuming his post as Director of Music Ministries, Scott was Associate Musician at St. Ignatius from 2001 to 2007 and Associate Director of Music from 2011-2012. As a liturgical musician in Manhattan, he has also served as Music Director or Interim Director at Immanuel Lutheran Church, Park Avenue United Methodist Church and Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church.
In addition to his work at St. Ignatius, Scott serves as Organist and Choirmaster at Congregation Emanu-El of the City of New York, the largest Jewish house of worship in the world, where he plays the 4-manual, 135-rank Glück pipe organ (a descendant of the 1929 Casavant dedicated by Marcel Dupré) and directs the 17-voice professional choir in over 120 choral liturgies annually. All of the Shabbat, Holy Day, and festival services year round are webcast on the Temple's website, and are full choral services involving the professional Temple Emanu-El Choir. Emanu-El is one of the only synagogues in the world to maintain this tradition.
Scott's choral compositions have been performed in New York City churches and in liturgies and concerts throughout North America, Europe, and Japan. Several of his pieces are published by Oxford University Press.
As organist, pianist (and sometimes vocalist), Scott has performed at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center's Avery Fisher Hall, Alice Tully Hall, and New York State Theater in collaborations with the New York Philharmonic, the American Symphony Orchestra, the Dresden Philharmonic, the New York Pops, the Orchestra of St. Luke's and the Lincoln Center Festival. He has toured with the New York Philharmonic to the Ravinia Festival in Chicago and to Vail, Colorado, playing Strauss's Also Sprach Zarathustra under the baton of David Robertson.
Prior to moving to New York in 2000, Scott spent three years as Organist and Associate Director of Music at Highland Park United Methodist Church in Dallas, one of the largest United Methodist congregations in the nation.
Scott's musical interests are not limited to classical music. While growing up in Dallas, Texas, he played in a variety of local bands, including five years with the Al "TNT" Braggs Show Band, a popular Dallas-based rhythm and blues revue. Scott is a graduate of the University of North Texas, where he studied organ with Jesse Eschbach and piano with Mary Nan Mailman.
