Nova IV: House & Home

Sunday, June 20, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm CDT

CME Nova IV Concert

Presented by Constellation Men’s Ensemble and hosted by Guarneri Hall

If home is where the heart is, what becomes of a heart without a home?

Constellation’s fourth annual NOVA new music series will premiere works giving voice to stories of shelter, displacement, and reunion within and without the four walls of a house. Nova IV will be streamed on Father’s Day, Sunday, June 20, 2021 at 5 p.m. CST. Register here on the Constellation website.

This program will feature the world premiere of Sean Ellis Hussey’s multimedia oratorio “safe, stable, loving, and permanent home,” commissioned by CME about our nation’s foster care system. Additional world premieres by Alex Berko, Rachel DeVore Fogarty, Daniel Gawthrop, Jacqueline Horner-Kwiatek, and Andrey Stolyarov.
