Organist Patrick Scott has a favorite day of the week, and it’s not Friday. On Sunday mornings, Scott, 26, shines as the new music associate and organist at Myers Park United Methodist Church. He collaborates with clergy to create a meaningful worship service for the congregation. The native of Picayune, Miss., who started playing the organ at age 8, competed in the National Competition in Organ Improvisation from July 1-6 in Nashville, Tenn., where he received second place for improvisation and Audience Favorite. This fall, he will earn a doctorate in musical arts from the University of Texas at Austin.
