INSTRUMENT: Scott plays a 1904 H. Fagnola violin.
Scott has spent the past 14 years in Cleveland, a city he has found to be perfect for raising his family. He and his wife, Barbara have three children: John, 23, Laura, 17 and Andy, 14. When he’s not playing with TCO, Scott enjoys coaching baseball, working on his family’s summer home, and running his own business. His favorite restaurant is Mad Jack’s in Aurora. When asked for his most memorable audition story, Scott recounted his very first audition which lasted 17 hours! It began at 9:00am, didn’t finish until 1:00am and consisted of 7 rounds. Luckily he endured and was one of four finalists out of 90.
