Soulful Symphony - Finished.

About Soulful Symphony
Founded in 2000 by composer and artistic director Darin Atwater, Soulful Symphony is dedicated to the preservation of African-American cultural expression and to the presentation of American vernacular music. Soulful Symphony is a repository for the exploration of diverse musical expressions: classical, jazz, gospel and popular forms capturing a universal language that gives all cultures common ground.

In 2004, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra forged an historic joint venture with Soulful Symphony, partnering with the organization to bring their unique brand of music to new and diverse audiences throughout Maryland. Since partnering with the BSO, Soulful Symphony has performed to sell-out houses at both the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall in Baltimore and the Music Center at Strathmore in North Bethesda.


About Darin Atwater, founder and director, Soulful Symphony
As a composer, conductor and pianist Mr. Atwater is regarded as one of the leading artists of his generation. His skills in the idioms of classical, jazz and sacred music have earned him a distinguished international reputation.

Mr. Atwater made his orchestral debut as both composer and pianist in May 1995 with the National Symphony Orchestra. Engagements with major orchestras, a European tour and world premieres of his numerous compositions followed. As a guest conductor he has appeared with the Baltimore Symphony, the Dallas Symphony and the Columbus Symphony. Mr. Atwater appears regularly with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis as both guest conductor and composer. Most recently he conducted the premiere of Mr. Marsalis' Mass, for the 200th anniversary of Abyssinian Baptist Church. He will return next season to conduct the premiere of Mr. Marsalis' Spaces for the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra and will also arrange for Nursery Song Swing.

Born in Washington D.C., Mr. Atwater studied under Dr. Nathan Carter at Morgan State University. While he studied composition briefly at the Peabody Institute, he is largely self taught in composition and his works reflect the reach of his imagination, skill and versatility. He has been influenced by diverse musical styles and has fused and sculpted these influences into a truly American sound.

Mr. Atwater served as Composer-in-Residence with the Baltimore Symphony from 2004-2007. This collaboration produced many evening length works that have become staples in Soulful Symphony's repertoire. Among them are, Song in a Strange Land, Evolution of a People, Paint Factory, Southern Folk Sketches and God's Trombones.

Mr. Atwater has a substantial presence in the recording industry. He as arranged and orchestrated for a “who's who” in Gospel music: Donnie McClurkin, Richard Smallwood, Yolanda Adams, Karen Clark-Sheard, Shirley Caesar and Donald Lawrence.

For the 2008-2009 school year, Mr. Atwater will serve as composition mentor for Digital Harbor High School. He has also partnered with Baltimore City Public Schools and will present his Paint Factory Lecture Series in 13 elementary schools.

Among his many honors and recognitions, Ebony magazine dubbed him one of the “30 Leaders of the Future,” and the Baltimore Business Journal placed him on their exclusive “40 under 40” list. Mr. Atwater is trustee for Maryland Citizens for the Arts and was recently given the 2008 Legends and Pioneers Award by The Afro American Newspapers. Mr. Atwater serves on the music team at Celebration Church in Columbia, Md.
