Come celebrate Symphony Number One's inaugural season with Mahler’s transcendent Symphony No.4! The fourth movement, a song depicting a child’s vision of heaven, will feature soprano soloist Amanda Williams. Also on the concert is the world premiere of Andrew Boss’s Concerto for Alto Saxophone and Chamber Orchestra, featuring saxophonist Sean Meyers. The concerto's accompanying orchestra offers a large palate of diverse tone colors with percussion, winds and strings. Symphony Number One is the East Coast's newest chamber orchestra, dedicated to performing and promoting substantial works by emerging composers. Led by Music Director Jordan Randall Smith, Symphony Number One brings together great composers of the past, virtuoso performers of the present, and the leading compositional voices of the future.
