GOOD TIMES! WITH CALLIOPE MUSIC

A Photo a Week Challenge: Good Times

I added some calliope music for the calliope enthusiasts (I am one!) and those who have never had the pleasure of hearing a real, old-fashioned steam calliope. Enjoy!

There is no music that makes me as nostalgic as a steam calliope. There are so few working calliopes remaining anywhere … if you get a chance to spend some time with one, don’t miss it! And if you play a keyboard, playing a calliope is just something else!

    • I was really surprised to see how it had changed. Apparently they have been doing this for many years. I just had never been to any of the Pops concerts at Symphony.I had been to Pops concerts outside, at the hat shell by the Charles, but there’s no seating at all, there. Just you, a blanket, and the ground.

  1. Great pictures! And what fun music. I would love to try playing a calliope sometime. I don’t know if we have any here in Utah. I will have to research. Thanks! And thanks for joining the challenge!
