As the lead in the Nova Chords quartet shortly after joining the Alexandria Harmonizers
( www.harmonizers.org ) he gained national recognition with the quartet's Mid-Atlantic District championship in 1968, their qualification for International Contest every year (1967 through 1978), and medaling in 1976 (3rd) and 1978 (5th).
In 1980, Scott became the lead in a new quartet, Vaudeville, who became Mid-Atlantic District champions in 1981, its first appearance in a district contest. The quartet qualified for International competition every year between 1981 and 1989, winning medals in 1982 (5th), 1983-84 (3rd), 1985 (2nd), and 1986 (3rd), before retiring in 1991. Scott also sang with Reminisce, who won the Mid-Atlantic District and International Seniors Quartet Championships in 1995.
Through these years, Scott served as Musical Director of the Alexandria Harmonizers for over 25 years! In 1977 he took the chorus to its first District championship and the 1978 International contest, where it earned a 4th place medal. In all, he has led the chorus to 12 District titles, each of which culminated in an International medal. This includes five bronze medals (1978, 1993-4, 2001-02), three silver medals (1979-80 and 1992), and four gold medals (1986, 1989, 1995, 1998).
Scott (1995) is one of two chorus directors in the history of the Society to win Society quartet (Reminisce) and chorus championships in the same year. Of course, Jim Henry, Director of The Ambassadors of Harmony and Bass of Crossroads is the other (2009).
Scotty retired from The Harmonizers in 2002 and he and his wife Linda moved to The Villages, Florida, where they enjoy the relaxed lifestyle of retirement. Scott became the Director of The Heart of Florida Chorus in 2003.
