Our primary objective for our Interesting Attorneys series of blog postings is to recognize lawyers who are doing very unique and interesting things in their personal live.  We are not seeking to endorse any lawyers for their legal expertise.  We selected Scott because of his stage talent and presence.

He is a classical singer, conductor, composer, and award-winning actor, having appeared on stages across the Central Gulf Coast in opera, musical theater, oratorios and in roles as diverse as Cervantes/Don Quixote in Man of La Mancha, Sr. Capulet in Romeo & Juliet, Morales in Carmen, Marco in Gianni Schicchi, and Emile DeBecque in South Pacific, to name only a few. His credits include over forty opera productions and as many stage plays. He has performed, as a bass-baritone, with four symphony orchestras.

Scott was the conductor of the Bay Area Strings Community Orchestra and assistant conductor of the Mobile Symphony Youth Orchestra, both part of the family of Mobile Symphony, Inc. from 2004 to 2009. He has served as a director and officer of several arts organizations including as president of the Mobile Arts Council. In 2001 he was the “man in the white suit” for nationally-aired television commercials advertising Mobile, Alabama’s tri-centennial. With his wife he recorded two CDs of songs from the WWII era as a fund-raiser for the benefit of the WWII Memorial Foundation.
