KRAIG SCOTT

 

A native of British Columbia, Kraig Scott has made recital appearances throughout North America, Europe, and the Far East in venues such as Dunblane Cathedral (Scotland), Kirkpatrick Chapel (Rutgers University), Central Lutheran Church (Eugene), St. Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral (Seattle), Central Synagogue (New York City), the Sejong Cultural Center (South Korea), and Gaoloumen Christian Church (Nanjing, China). He has presented recitals and master classes at many institutions such as the Eastman School, Pacific Lutheran University, Westminster Choir College, the Universities of Alberta, Washington, and Oregon, and for various chapters of the American Guild of Organists.

 

As a collaborative artist he has worked in a wide range of styles including frequent work with Janet See (baroque flute), Joseph Brooks (clarinet), and Zuill Bailey (cello). He has appeared with singers Elias Mokole, Charles Reid, James Brown, and Tom Netherton, baroque cellist Marc Vanscheeuwijck, baroque violinist Eduard Melkus, gambist Margriet Tindemans, harpsichordist Arthur Haas, violinist Kurt Nikkanen, and conductors Helmuth Rilling, Robert Bode, Anton Armstrong, and Joe Miller. In his work as a conductor Scott has led festival choirs in Washington and Oregon and directed the 400-voice choir of the SDA International Choral Congress in Bucha, Ukraine. Under his leadership I Cantori, the select choir of Walla Walla University, has performed throughout the Pacific Northwest, Hawaii, California, North Carolina, Georgia, and Florida.

 

At Walla Walla University his responsibilities include conducting the University choirs, teaching organ and harpsichord, and overseeing all music at the University Church. His organ, harpsichord, and piano students have won many competitions, appeared on NPR’s “From the Top” and been heard at regional and national AGO conventions and MTNA conventions. In addition to his work at WWU he serves as organ instructor at Whitman College.

 

Scott is a graduate of the Eastman School where his teachers included David Craighead and Russell Saunders. At Eastman he received both an MA in musicology and a DMA in organ performance as well as the coveted Performer’s Certificate. He completed post-graduate choral conducting study with David Rayl and Jonathan Reed at Michigan State University.
