The name Constella is derived from constellation, a group of stars that form a recognizable pattern. Since our origin, we’ve created constellations to make sense of the vastness of the night sky and to fulfill our deep hunger to connect with the bigger world around us.
Music and art serve the same purpose. They are as essential to our existence as they are vast, and with so many existing and emerging genres and mediums in our contemporary world, finding an organic, deep connection is challenging.
Three years ago, renowned violinist and Constella founder, Tatiana Berman, envisioned a festival that helps a global audience make tangible connections in new ways. What started as a local Cincinnati arts festival has grown to produce a mass of interdisciplinary works, daring performances, original music, and digital content that is changing the way people perceive classical music and the performing arts. Constella has blossomed into an open platform where artists are not bounded by disciplines and expectations.
Constella’s fearless approach is driven by its stars and inspired by its supporters, whose growing numbers give us the courage to continue to take risks. The festival has attracted an array of renowned artists who relish the rare opportunity to experiment with an enthusiastic audience in an intimate setting.
Previous performers include Joshua Bell, Hilary Hahn, Jimmy Heath, Paavo Jarvi, Missy Mazzoli, Nico Muhly, Anne Akiko Meyers, Valentina Lisitsa, Ted Nash, Lew Soloff, Jean-Yves Thibaudet, and Alexander Toradze.
