Although a classically trained trumpeter, Scott has proven versatility in a range of styles, and has performed extensively throughout the East Coast. His trumpeting has also taken him to the Mid-West, Canada, and Europe. As a freelance musician in Southern New England, Scott’s forte has been within the realm of sacred music. He remains in demand as a wedding trumpeter, can be heard regularly as the Trumpeter-in-Residence at the well-known St. Luke’s Catholic Church in Barrington, RI, is a past member of the Ocean State Pops Orchestra, and now performs with the Greenwich Bay Brass, the Lakeside Brass Quintet, and the Kindred Brass, which he founded.
