Halcyon Chamber Series (Season 4)


Calliope Brass

New York-based quintet Calliope Brass performs repertoire ranging from
jazz to classical, pops to swing, and everything in between. Since its
inception in 2015, the ensemble has been inspired by the power of
storytelling through music in a variety of settings, from national parks to
children’s theaters. Concert audiences enjoy exciting programming, often
showcasing newly commissioned works and original arrangements.
Calliope also develops larger projects combining original documentary film,
live actors, guest artists, and exclusive composer interviews to create an
immersive storytelling experience. Like the muse who inspires our name, we
are committed to the art of storytelling. Combining the traditional brass
quintet with a variety of guest performers, we present the narrative through
a new medium by drawing upon personal experiences, traditional pieces,
new commissions, and innovative arrangements to tell our stories in an
exciting and engaging way. 
Calliope is committed to excellence in performance and educational
initiatives, in order to further the role of women brass musicians as both
artists and teachers. Members are versatile musicians found playing in
Broadway pits, major symphony orchestras, the Amazon series Mozart in the
Jungle, mainstage acts including Adele, Pink Martini, and Andrea Bocelli, and
sharing their artistry in schools nationwide.
