In 2006 with Scott as Musical Director, his co-creation with Writer and Artistic Director Paul Gallant will see yearly productions of Le Grand Cercle which will be a cornerstone of a major community/cultural/tourism initiative in Cheticamp. The cast recording has been nomintated for an East Coast Music Award.
Macmillan’s choral classical Celtic cross-over work composition Celtic Mass for the Sea, which he collaborated with his wife, Jennyfer Brickenden, is much loved and much performed including Carnegie Hall, the UK and Germany. His award winning composition, MacKinnon’s Brook Suite for bagpipe and orchestra was premiered with Symphony Nova Scotia and later broadcast for National CBC TV.
An exceptional guitarist, Scott is a multiple ECMA (East Coast Music Award) winner, for his recordings with the innovative group Puirt a Baroque, Bach Meets Cape Breton and also for his own collaborative recordings The Minnie Sessions Volumes 1, 2, & 3 and the MacKinnon’s Brook Suite, which he composed for Ian MacKinnon and Symphony Nova Scotia (SNS).
Macmillan has played a pivotal role in highly successful Maritime Pops Series with Symphony Nova Scotia’s (SNS). He was the inaugural Host Conductor and Arranger for this series. Since the mid 1980’s he has built bridges, creating relationships between the classical world of SNS and the diversity of Nova Scotia’s musical and cultural communities. This most popular Maritime Pops Series has resulted in numerous sold-out performances every season. A master guitar player, Scott delights audiences by joining his guest artists on guitar from the podium.
Scott’s unique innovative and creative talent to explore music’s vast mosaic makes him an exhilarating and energetic musical force whose performances are always fresh.
