ABOUT ALLAN R. SCOTT

conductor

"Maestro Scott is as intoxicating as you could wish and has that all-too-rare feeling of risk-taking spontaneity.”
-New Zealand National Radio

Currently in his sixteenth season as Music Director of the Helena Symphony Orchestra & Chorale, Maestro Allan R. Scott is one of the most dynamic figures in symphonic music and opera. He is widely recognized for his outstanding musicianship, versatility, and ability to elicit top-notch performances from musicians. SYMPHONY Magazine praised Maestro Scott for his “large orchestra view,” noting that “under Scott’s leadership the quality of the orchestra’s playing has skyrocketed.”

Maestro Scott has also become closely associated with the works of Gustav Mahler. He has conducted all of Mahler’s symphonies nationally and internationally with companies such as The National Orchestra of Romania and the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra of New Zealand. New Zealand National Radio noted “A concert with Maestro Scott is as intoxicating as you could wish..., and has an all-too-rare feeling of risk-taking spontaneity.”

In addition to making his debut with Marble City Opera this Season, Maestro Scott has appeared with such companies as The Tanglewood Music Center, Royal Opera of Netherlands, Portland Opera, Fairfax Opera Company, Kent Opera, The Bucharest National Opera, The National Radio Orchestra of Romania in Bucharest, New Zealand’s Christchurch Symphony Orchestra, Firelands Symphony in Cleveland, Pottstown Symphony (PA), Orchestra Society of Philadelphia, New Artists Philharmonic (CO), and Fairfax Symphony.

Dividing his time between residences in Helena and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the Philadelphia native also begins his seventeenth season as Music Director of Pennsylvania’s Southeastern Pennsylvania Symphony in addition to serving as the Principal Conductor of the Wilmington Ballet Company in Delaware for the past decade.

He further refined his craft with Luis Biava, Zdenék Macal, Sir David Willcocks, and Jorge Mester at renowned institutions, among them the Tanglewood Music Center, California Conducting Institute, The Keene Music Festival, Ogontz Music Festival, and the Conducting Institute of South Carolina.
