Symphony Number One is Baltimore's newest chamber orchestra, dedicated to performing and promoting substantial works by emerging composers.
Led by Music Director Jordan Randall Smith, Symphony Number One brings together great composers of the past, virtuoso performers of the present, and the leading compositional voices of the future. We have ambitious plans to position our orchestra as an innovating leader in social change using the power of the music of our time.

Last Friday, the Warnock Foundation named Symphony Number One to the fall class of Baltimore Social Innovation Fellows! Competing with 84 other entries narrowed down to 24 finalists, we proposed to work with West Baltimore's Innovation Village development district to provide free and severely-reduced-price concerts in West Baltimore that mirror our current offerings in Midtown and Downtown. We've already begun planning the first of these performances.
Asst. Conductor JoAnna Cochenet most recently served as the Conductor of the Northeast String Orchestra in New York and Music Director at Grace United Methodist Church. Cochenet has also been Guest Conductor and Clinician for several All-County, All-City String and Symphony Orchestra Festivals, and other school, camp, and community orchestra rehearsals and concerts across the states. She currently serves as a string instructor at Levine Music in Washington D.C.
What I like the most about Symphony Number One is their dedication to bringing the works of emerging composers to life. Being involved with SNO means being a part of the creative process, allowing new music to reach out and positively influence the community
