The word ‘Kallos’ originated from the Ancient Greek word ‘kállos’, which means 'beauty', 'nobility', and 'a beautiful thing.' This 'beauty' comes from the Greek philosophy concept of the creation of beauty in all aspects of life on the part of a person observing and enjoying existing harmony and beauty. Kallos Chamber Music Series took the name from this word as chamber music is shared experiences of beauty for both artists and audiences.
When everything works together - the venue, the artists, the audience, the music -
chamber music becomes magical.
