Constella is...

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 serves the same purpose. It is as essential to our existence as it is vast, and with so many existing and emerging genres and mediums at our fingertips,
finding an organic, deep connection is an essential part of the human experience.

We're on a mission...

Our mission is to challenge misconceptions of classical music and the performing arts through the creation of original music, interdisciplinary works and digital content. We advance this mission by providing educational and showcase opportunities for young artists, ensuring a vibrant future for self-expression.

It's a movement...

Constella is more than a festival, it is a movement. Six years ago renowned violinist and Constella founder Tatiana Berman envisioned an organization that helps a global audience make tangible connections in new ways. What started as a Cincinnati music and arts festival has grown into an organization that produces interdisciplinary works, daring performances, original music, and digital content, along the way changing how people perceive classical music and the performing arts.

Founded by violinist Tatiana Berman, Constella Festival’s innovative music and visual arts events have the audiences spellbound by the energy of the intimate and electrifying performances.
