Macmillan's music is magical [and his] instinct for what ought to come next in a piece of music is unerring.

Macmillan has many musical irons in the fire.  Keeping station on Scott Macmillan would tax a long-distance runner. He's always got something going on, always juggling his triple-threat career of performing, conducting and composing.

One of the most delightful evenings of music imaginable took place at Centre in the Square and much of the credit for the success lies in the incredible talent of guest conductor/arranger Scott Macmillan.
