Quote from our last booklet:
"As President of the European Music Council, I am delighted to welcome the Callias Foundation as one of our newest members. Their core programmes: the Conference of the Birds which leads us to the inspirational Silk Road Cultural Belt and its practical manifestation in the Silk Road Symphony Orchestra are incredible examples of what can be achieved through creative thinking aligned to great music performed at the highest level by a group of musicians who, I am sure will take their rightful place on the international stage. To seek to "mobilise the creative potential of music lovers around the world" is one ambition I fully support and wish them every success in this endeavour.
Ian Smith: President of the European Music Council"
