Scott Macmillan’s passion for creating music propels him forward seeking opportunities in all aspects of music.
Two world premieres in 2019, ‘12 & Change’ Scott’s concerto for Electric Guitar with Symphony Nova Scotia and ‘Woodland Revival’ an experiential composition derived & performed by Mi'kmaw drummers, Persian, Celtic & Classical musicians.
Music has taken Macmillan with librettist Jennyfer Brickenden places nationally and internationally including Carnegie Hall performing their much loved “Celtic Mass for the Sea”,.
Awards, appointments, commissions, critical reviews reflect Macmillan’s contributions to the music of Nova Scotia and beyond. An integral contributor to the success of the late Rita MacNeil, Scott played pivotal role in the rise of the Rankin Family Band, the Nova Scotia Mass Choir and led Symphony Nova Scotia’s Maritime Pops for 10 years in the 1990’s.
In 2008 Scott began mentoring a new generation of guitarists at the Fountain School of Performing Arts, Dalhousie University
