Join We in Song: Music from
Around the World

A benefit concert for More than Words

Join We in Song is a celebration of music from around the world.

From African choruses to symphonic storytelling and scenes set
through opera, we aim to illustrate that we are all more alike than we
may think. We believe that it is important now for us to remind
ourselves of these things and connect through music.

Our beneficiary partner: More than Words

Calliope is honored to have More than Words as our beneficiary partner this season.

More Than Words is a nonprofit social enterprise that empowers youth who are in the foster care system, court involved, homeless, or out of school to take charge of their lives by taking charge of a business.
