Dwarf lilac syringa


I bought a syringa last year and I'm not sure how best to prune it.  It's I supposed to, or rather the intention was,  to grow a single stem with a rounded lilac on top. However,  this is the first year and it seems to be growing quite vigorously.  

Several additional stems have grown out from the base and the flowers are buried in between some tall stems. Should I cut these stems down? And will I damage the tree if I cut back the additional stems growning from the base please? 

Many thanks for any help and advice. 

Kind regards
