Now, for the first time, we are releasing a full-length album exclusively featuring emerging composers. More represents the best of Symphony Number One: three stimulating new works for chamber orchestra by a slate of three of the next generation's most promising voices, all lovingly prepared and performed in Baltimore.
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
I couldn't be more excited to perform with some of my beloved SNO colleagues this Thursday at The Center Club! You'll hear a bit of Wanamaker, Ives, Gershwin, and a tease of Mahler's Song of the Earth from yours truly. Join us for a summer evening of hors dâ€™oeuvres and musical flair at A Taste of Symphony Number One!
A letter from Principal Horn and Director of Development, Selena Maytum. "
We have had a wonderful year of performing new music, gathering new audiences, and working with some amazing composers. One highlight for me was performing John Adams' Son of Chamber Symphony. That piece was one of the first "modern" compositions that I fell in love with as a horn player, and it was great to work with Jordan and the rest of our ensemble to bring it to life last May."
An open letter from our Music Director. Jordan Randall Smith | Founder & Music Director
Dear Friends and Family,
Thanks to all of you, Baltimore now has a new cultural organization, Symphony Number One, and the internet has a new place for exciting and meaningful music by emerging composers. You helped us build it, you helped fund it, and you should be proud of everything that's come out of it!
