Dear Friends, Colleagues and Music Lovers,
As the year draws to a close, we would like to thank you for your continued support
of the Silk Road Symphony Orchestra.
2016 has been an exciting year for us. The first year at the Conference of the Birds with 244.297 visitors.
Let's collectively and individually imagine a period of stability and peace especially in
countries along the Silk Road Cultural Belt which will lead to knew opportunities in all spheres of society.
Music speaks from the deepest collective roots we have as a deeper common ground for each other to share.
We believe that great music remains an example of great dreams - let's work together to make this world
a better place - composing a Silk Road together.
The Silk Road Symphony Orchestra looks forward to play it's role in this vision and calls you All to start with a piece of silk at YOUR Conference of the Birds.
It costs a bit of personal reflection - and sincerity.
On behalf of all the CALLIAS FOUNDATION team, I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Jan Moritz Onken
Co-Founder and artistic director
