A Letter From Constella Artistic Director Tatiana Berman

Constella is like an ever-evolving, multi-dimensional box of delicious, fine chocolates. You will want to try them all, and every single one is distinctly exciting.

Year 2014 kept us busy — creating music videos, introducing a new movie about classical music, performing cool programs for kids in schools and communities, and collaborating with organizations and artists.
Coming up this week (Oct. 15-17) we have a fun three-day showcase to celebrate our evolution and to announce Constella Festival 2015. The main performance is An Evening With Igudesman & Joo on Thursday, Oct. 16 at 8pm, featuring Alek­sey Igudes­man and Hyung-ki Joo - musicians who have taken the world by storm with their unique and hilarious theatrical shows, combining comedy with classical music and popular culture. Their clips on YouTube have gathered over 35 million hits and they are equally comfortable in concert halls or in huge stadiums.
Their collective dream is to make classical music accessible to a wider and younger audience, which aligns perfectly with Constella’s vision. An evening of surprises, this will be a unique and exciting experience, (especially for me, since I have just been asked to join in on a few musical numbers - we’ll find out what that means soon… ) Afterwards, join us at Zula for wine and bites.

Endearingly nicknamed "The Announcement," on Oct. 17 at 8pm at the 21c we'll offer a glimpse into our digital art work and an introduction to Constella Festival April 2015 line up.
Among other things, there will be a screening of select music videos produced by Constella - Vitali Variations, and a premiere of the first ever music video byGrammy Award winning group Roomful of Teeth. We’ll also take a sneak peek at a documentary feature film Maestro, starring Paavo Jarvi, Joshua Bell, Hilary Hahn, Lang Lang, and Pekka Kuusisto. This is a free presentation, but seating is limited and an advanced registration required. Click HERE to register.
See you there!
