1543 MUSIC DIRECTOR Calliope, a unique Boston-based choral and orchestra ensemble seeks a Music Director who will further our collaborative approach to music-making and assist us in furthering our growth in musicianship, membership, and audiences! About Calliope Calliope was founded in 2006 with a uniquely innovative collaborative approach to choral/orchestral music-making. Its membership includes both chorus and orchestra that rehearse together consistently every week. As a collaborative ensemble, the Music Director is responsible for leading rehearsals and facilitating collaboration between singers and instrumentalists during each session. Additionally, all members are encouraged to contribute programming input and are eligible to audition for solos. Collaboration also extends into the community. Every February Calliope’s performance benefits a small, local non-profit selected by the Board of Directors; the music repertoire for this concert reflects the mission of the beneficiary. Collaboration also includes mentoring young musicians through our scholarship program, whereby two or three high school students (singers and instrumentalists) are given the opportunity to rehearse and perform with Calliope, providing unique instruction via dedicated mentoring adult members and a sophisticated concert experience for passionate young musicians.
