Kalliope Septet Residency
This season Stephanie is Composer in Residence for the Kalliope Septet. Based in Boston, the Kalliope Septet is a mixed strings/woodwind chamber group of young musicians all of whom are also in the Boston Youth Symphony Orchestra. Highlights from their upcoming season include performing for the Kennedy Foundation and being featured on NPR's From the Top, a showcase of the top classical music talent among youth in America. As part of her residency, Stephanie is writing a musical biography of the group's namesake, Kalliope. Meaning "beautiful voice", this character from Greek mythology was one of the nine muses and mother to Orpheus. The Kalliope Septet will present this work in whole and in part several times throughout this season.
