Kalistos Chamber Orchestra was formed in the winter of 2002 by a group
of Boston's finest musicians, brought together by their common love of
music and a desire to contribute to the community. These players bring
their varied backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences together in a
collaborative environment, creating an orchestra that is democratic in
its artistic direction. The group is fully rotational both musically
and administratively, allowing each member to explore and develop every
facet of a chamber orchestra's responsibilities and roles. Please visit
