Hi all.  Welcome to scottlaird.net! 

It has been a wonderful fall and the NCSSM Orchestra is off and running! It looks to be another great year with exciting performances. Some newly announced NCSSM concert dates for the year include:

  • February 8: NCSSM Masterworks Concert (Featuring Beethoven's Symphony #2)
  • May 15: NCSSM Concerto Concert 

ASTA Members: Please consider participating in the first ASTA National Conference Teachers' Orchestra as a pre-conference session in Orlando in March!  

I am looking forward to conducting the El Sistema USA 2020 Regional Seminario Orchestra on Sunday Feb 2.

I am also pleased to announce that I will be teaching at the Conn Selmer Institute this summer from June 7-10.   I will be heading up the String Track for the event along with my dear friend and colleague, Jim Palmer.​

I continue to post on my blog periodically throughout the year.  You can find it at Thoughts of a String Educator.   You can also follow me as Orchestraguy on Twitter.

I am now booking appearances into 2020 and  I have recently added several new dates to my "Appearances" page.  

As always, don't hesitate to contact me if I can help you out in any way.

All my best!
