Timothy Scott, Cello

Tim Scott

New Yorker Tim Scott knew that he would be a musician from age five, when his parents took him and his sister to a farm for a vacation. He spent so much time with an old player piano in the farmhouse basement that the owners gave him the piano when he left. Tim started cello at Public School 206 in Brooklyn at age 10, then went to the High School of Music and Art, Juilliard, and Sarah Lawrence College (one of seven men there his first year). After performing for two years with Harry Chapin, he joined the Oregon Symphony in 1973. In recent years he has devoted much time and study to performing baroque music on his viola da gamba and baroque cello.

Tim comes from a performing family. His father was a writer and editor, his mother was a professional actress in Seattle, and his sister is a singer. He enjoys spending time with his family (wife and two stepsons), and camping, libraries, traveling, cooking, and working out.
