Megan Roth

Mezzo-Soprano Megan Roth founded Calliope’s Call in January 2015, with the primary purpose of sharing classical art song, a largely neglected art form in the professional arena, providing artists an opportunity to create meaningful and interesting programs, and attracting new audience members to the genre, who perhaps had never had the opportunity to experience art song. Read more>>

Zach Parker

I’ve always enjoyed being active and playing sports, especially with my friends when I was younger. I played basketball, baseball, football, and even tried learning how to skateboard- which didn’t go too well. I gained a significant amount of weight after high school when I didn’t have the time to stay as active as I had been when I was young. Read more>>

Nicholas Dhimitri

I’ve have always been interested in animation. For most of High School I thought I wanted to be a writer for film or T.V, but I was drawing all the time and eventually I made the decision, that If I became an animator I could design and make my own films from the ground up. Read more>>

Chelsea Bloxsom

I started making toys and other crafts around 10 years ago. I was working at an arts & crafts store and had easy access to all these different mediums to try. I tried out a whole bunch of different things, but once I took sheets of felt and cut them into little creatures people seemed to really respond to them. Read more>>

Fredson Sossavi

We immigrated to the United States when I was young so a lot of my childhood revolved around moving from place to place. With that being said, making friends was very difficult for me , so I always looked for ways to express some of the things I felt at the time. Read more>>

Dan O’Neil

I am a runner, but was very heavy. At my heaviest I was running road races at 330 pounds. I decided in 2015 I wanted to run the B.A.A. Half Marathon. About 6 weeks before the race I switched gyms and met my good friend and trainer, Jennifer Ceolinski. She was the run coordinator at the gym and is also the track and cross country coach at Stoughton High. Read more>>

Anjan Biswas

My personal story is too long and weird so I’ll just talk about how I started Cityside. I used to work as a bar-back at a college bar called ‘Roggie’s’ in Cleveland Circle. It wasn’t particularly well-managed or run and it got shut down.At the time, I was dead broke and had pretty much all my eggs in the comedy basket, which was really naive and stupid of me. Read more>>

Wayne Pearcy

I’ve always had a strong connection with music. Sound has been an important part of my identity since I was a child. My dad discovered that I had perfect pitch when I was four years old, and he encouraged me to consider playing an instrument. When I was in fourth grade, I was introduced to classical music in my elementary music class. Read more>>
