Meet Scott

Scott Kolman-Keen is the new co-director of Chops SoundSport. He is the director of bands at Hiawatha Collegiate High School and has been an educator for 17 years.

Scott was formerly the Director of Chops Drum Corps from 2013-2017, when he helped to re-establish Chops as a regionally and nationally competitive organization and earned the title "2016 Drum Corps Associates (DCA) Director of the Year." In addition, he performed with Minnesota Brass in 2010, 2011, and 2012, including the 2011 DCA World Championship.

Scott earned a Bachelor of Music Education from Louisiana State University and a Master of Science degree in Special Education from Western Governors University. A fourth-generation educator, he and his wife Sarah (also a teacher!) live in Saint Louis Park with their two young daughters, Emerson and Charlotte, as well as their beloved pets and a revolving door of foster cats and dogs.

“It is an honor to be selected again to serve the organization in a leadership capacity! My team and I are excited for the opportunity to evolve the activity in innovative and creative ways, and we believe that the new Chops SoundSport will be a point of pride for Chops now and for years to come. We intend to field a competitive ensemble in the DCI SoundSport arena, with a simple goal: to create memorable performances that are life-enhancing for audiences and members alike.”
