Sinatra to the Supremes: A Cellist of all styles

Originally from the tiny state of Rhode Island, Cellist Scott Crowley headed south in 2005 and merged his huge talent with that of the Southwest Florida Symphony—Lee County’s professional orchestra.

Scott is a cellist of all styles, having played in various orchestras, operas, musicals, and even rock bands, throughout the country. Some of those artists include Kansas, Little River Band, Blood Sweat and Tears, The Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Mannheim Steamroller, Andrea Bocelli, Il Divo, Johnny Mathis, Mary Wilson (of The Supremes), Regis Philbin, Frank Sinatra Jr., Tito Puente Jr., John Secada, Kenny G (shown above) and many others.

Scott regularly blogs about cello technique. His mission is to make Classical music more accessible for young people. Even now, he is putting the finishing touches on his first book. Scott is also a poet. Although he owns a traditional wooden cello, you will notice him performing on his highly unique black Luis & Clark carbon-fiber cello, which he prefers for the “clarity of the overtones and the resonance“ it produces.

Before long, you’ll get to hear Scott live along with our other equally talented musicians during the Southwest Florida Symphony’s 60th Anniversary season! Meanwhile, check out Scott’s Youtube channel which he is constantly infusing with fresh new music.
