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
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!
Our second Call for Scores is complete: congratulations to Martha Callison Horst and Nick Omiccioli for winning our top prize: commissions for our 2016-17 season. We evaluated a rich and satisfying array of unique voices, and these two stood out among the 120 entries. We also look forward to many exciting projects ahead for some of our finalists, so like us on Facebook for the latest announcements!
