Named 2016 "Best of Baltimore" by Baltimore Magazine

 

Gearing Up  


Friends,

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 Gershwin, Ives, and a tease of Mahler's Song of the Earth from yours truly. I hope you'll join us for a summer evening of hors d’oeuvres and musical flair at A Taste of Symphony Number One!

Your support is the catalyst for our work in bringing you the latest music by emerging composers; in order for us to keep sharing our music with you, we need your help. Our Season 2 campaign is well underway, so whether you're a previous supporter or new to our cause, please consider donating. I do hope you'll join in on all the fun this month, and as always, thank you so much for your continued love and support. 

All the best, 

Taylor Boykins
Director of Communications


We Won!

 
Symphony Number One was named "Category Buster" winner as well as "Best Band" Runner Up for Baltimore Magazine's Best of Baltimore 2016 edition! They described Symphony Number One as defying their category parameters for being a perfect mix between a classical music experience and a Friday night jam session. We're honored!

About Symphony Number One

SYMPHONY NUMBER ONE is Baltimore's newest chamber orchestra, performing substantial works by emerging composers alongside riveting masterworks, beloved classics, and a twist of pop. SYMPHONY NUMBER ONE brings together great composers of the past, virtuoso performers of the present, and the leading compositional voices of the future, creating electrifying concert experiences for all of Baltimore.

Praised for presenting, "full-length freshness on each program," by the Baltimore Sun, the orchestra was founded in 2015 by Music Director Jordan Randall Smith after recruiting a creative team of colleagues from the Peabody Conservatory: Nicholas BentzSean MeyersMelissa Lander, and Christopher Ciampoli. SYMPHONY NUMBER ONE has premiered new works of over a dozen composers, released two must-have albums (available for stream or download on Spotify iTunes), and performed at Baltimore's inaugural Light City Festival. The orchestra was also highlighted in Baltimore STYLE as "brazen...like an indie rock band," featured on the acclaimed television show MPT Artworks, granted the "Category Buster" award and chosen as Runner Up for Baltimore's Best Band in this year's Baltimore Magazine Best of Baltimore 2016.

SYMPHONY NUMBER ONE develops close working relationships with young and emerging composers, gives new works multiple hearings, produces polished recordings, and creates unique concert experiences for all of Baltimore.
