Scott Weiss is the Sarah Bolick Smith Distinguished Professor of Music at the University of South Carolina where he conducts the USC Wind Ensemble, teaches conducting at the master’s and doctoral levels, and oversees all aspects of the university’s band program. Born in San Francisco in 1967, Scott Weiss received his musical training in trumpet performance at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, and his career as a trumpet player included performances with the National Symphony Orchestra of Washington, DC. He received both a master’s degree and a doctorate at the University of Illinois where he studied conducting with James Keene and Donald Schleicher.
