A Letter from Selena

A Letter from Selena

A letter from Principal Horn and Director of Development, Selena Maytum. "

Friends,

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."

Symphony Number One is Baltimore's Newes Chamber Orchestra, devoted to substantial works by emerging composers.
