Goldberg Named Composer-in-Residence
BALTIMORE, MD – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Symphony Number One names Ben Goldberg Composer-in-Residence for its 2017-2018 season. Goldberg's music will appear throughout the next two seasons, beginning with his latest piece, Cornerstone, to be premiered at Mount Vernon Place on August 23rd at 7 PM as part of the Mount Vernon Place Conservancy's Summer in the Squares series.
As Composer-in-Residence, Goldberg will become a regular advisor to Symphony Number One's Board of Directors and engage on a large portfolio of projects, including judging Symphony Number One's upcoming Fourth Call for Scores, creating arrangements and couture compositions, and developing additional composer support and education programs.
Music Director Jordan Randall Smith welcomed Goldberg, saying, “Ben is a remarkable composer who first came to Symphony Number One's attention via his entry in our inaugural Call for Scores, coming at a time when SNO had no track record, marking him as something of a pioneer. I have continued to be grateful for Ben's artistic vision and his generosity of spirit and look forward to the good work we will do together."
Goldberg succeeds outgoing Composer-in-Residence Nicholas Bentz. Bentz was one of the co-founding members of the orchestra, which recently premiered his latest composition, Approaching Eternity, which will appear on SNO's 4th album, to be released on November 3, 2017.
