For six straight years, Constella has rocked Cincinnati with diverse, multidisciplinary concert experiences and dozens of world premieres performed by some of the greatest musicians alive. The 2018 Constella festival, which marks the 7th anniversary of Constella Arts, was inspired by the love and passion that Cincinnatians feel for our growing city. From February 23rd through March 3rd, this passion will be manifested in several programs that include guitar music, bandoneon, tango, violin + piano, lots of visual art, and a premiere of a short documentary series celebrating our city’s Renaissance.

Not So Classical: The Story of Love
The Story of Love is a conceptual performance consisting of short films interlaced with live music, and original poetry. Since humanity’s origin love has been a mystery, a fascination, and an obsession. The Story of Love continues this exploration through an immersive experience. Each short musical piece and film vignette utilises scientific data and philosophical references to convey chapters in the human and musical relationship with love. From the scientific to the philosophical, the emotional to the historical, we celebrate a magical force that can bring us both absolute bliss and complete insanity. Art exhibition features artwork of couples who are both artists.
