Far as I can tell from their site, there's no way for a Linux user to see
Scorch content.  Maybe musicians don't use Linux :-)

Yep.  MIDI + PDF would be an alternative way to do audio and score. 
Probably not as nice as Scorch, but more accessible.

Not unless I go find a Windows box or a Mac somewhere.  

Note: I'm not saying you shouldn't use Scorch.  Although I can't see it, I'm
sure it's quite cool.  I would just provide an alternative option for users
who a) can't download the Scorch plugin, or b) don't want to.  Or, if your
site is targetted at a small audience, and you're fairly sure they use
mainstream OS/browser and are dedicated enough to go download the plugin,
you can just ignore me entirely and post an apology to the users you exclude
