Scott Stewart

Scott Stewart fell in love with the viola in the 5th grade after musicians from the Kansas City Symphony performed at his school in the suburbs of Kansas City, Kan. Scott joined the Fort Collins Symphony in 1995 while studying viola with Carla Hager at Colorado State University where he had the pleasure of knowing and working for many years with the Fort Collins Symphony founder, Will Schwartz. Scott regularly performs with various regional orchestras and chamber groups and previously served as principal viola for the CSU Symphonic and Chamber Orchestras as well as the Longmont Symphony.

Scott is the founder and Executive Director of the local non-profit organization NoCo Artists ( where he organizes, performs and composes music for unique and genre-defying events involving collaboration between musicians and other artists. What Scott enjoys most in life is making music with friends, cooking with friends and family and spending time with his wife and four sons.
