As a member of the MTA's Music Under New York program, Calliope Brass will open for this event celebrating a new anniversary anthology of 100 superb poems by Poetry in Motion authors.

Since 1992, the Poetry Society of America and New York’s Metropolitan Transporation Authority have joined forces to present poems in subway cars and buses in one of the most beloved public art programs in America. To celebrate the new anniversary anthology of 100 superb poems (with a foreword by Billy Collins), many of the poets featured will gather to read their own poems and favorites by others from the past 25 years, including Major Jackson, Jim Moore, Paul Muldoon, Marilyn Nelson, and Patrick Phillips.
