Calliope is now seeking applications for a new music director. See the Calliope Music Director Search page for details.

1st Annual Call for Scores — the Results are in!!

We are very pleased to congratulate the winner of our 1st Annual Call for Scores Bobby Ge for his submission "I Cannot Dream Your Dreams", for choir and orchestra. Calliope will give the world premiere to this work on our Winter concert, tentatively scheduled for February-March 2021. 

We would also like to announce two Honorable Mentions, "Requiem and Kyrie" for chorus and strings by Jeremy Beck, and "Battle-Pieces" for chorus and strings by Jonathan Santore. 

Thanks to all of the 54 composers who participated for "answering the call"! We look forward to offering our 2nd Call for Scores in Spring 2021!

We hope you enjoyed our February concert, Dreams and Visions, a benefit concert for Project Pacer.

This year's Tapas chamber concert, originally scheduled for April 25, has been postponed to November 2020 - stay tuned for full info on next season's events!


Calliope is a unique ensemble built upon an innovative model of choral and instrumental collaboration. Serving the Boston area and beyond, Calliope performs rarely heard repertoire alongside more well-known works, enhancing the understanding and importance of both. Beyond presenting concerts, Calliope is dedicated to building bridges in our community with its Beneficiary Partnership Program, supports young musicians through our Mentorship Program, and is active in the creation of new music in its annual Call for Scores.

“I’m happy to be part of a group with such a big heart”

—Camille, 1st year
