A Garland officer recently played a big role in the Garland Symphony Orchestra.

Officer William Scott Wollett doesn’t just look like he knows what he’s doing. He does know. He used to be a principal oboe player for the orchestra.

They wanted to honor him with the chance to be the conductor for a night. A lot of Garland officers and their families were in the crowd.

“It’s a lot of fun. It’s my first time to get in front of an orchestra and conduct and I just really enjoyed it,” he said.

Wollett was classically trained. He studied at the Julliard School and the Cleveland Music Institute.

The officer and his wife also performed some festive music during a community night out event in Garland.
