Scott Macmillan has a passion for creating music in all its forms. Driven by his need to be creative, Macmillan seeks opportunities in all aspects of music making. His love of music has inspired exploration into genres from rock to blues, classical to choral, Celtic to jazz, as well as modern and avant-garde. Scott Macmillan is well known for his work with Symphony Nova Scotia (SNS), with whom he has been Host Conductor of the Mostly Maritime Pops Series since 1995. For SNS he has created shows with such top Atlantic Canadian artists as Natalie MacMaster, Rita MacNeil, Raylene Rankin, J. P. Cormier, among others, and his musical collaborations have contributed significantly to the exploding Atlantic pop music scene since the mid-l980's. Music has taken Macmillan to places like Carnegie Hall in New York, to perform his much loved ode to our world’s oceans “Celtic Mass for the Sea”, with his partner and librettist Jennyfer Brickenden. He has performed in the British Isles and Germany, the US and has crossed Canada many times to conduct orchestras, perform, make television and radio shows and sound tracks for films. Yet the many who seek out his talents know that Nova Scotia, the home of his birth, is where to find him.
