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.
This program will feature the world premiere of Sean Ellis Hussey’s vocal oratorio “VOICES, a qualitative ethnography of foster care” commissioned by CME about our nation’s foster care system. Additional world premieres by Alex Berko, Rachel DeVore Fogarty, Daniel E. Gawthrop, Jacqueline Horner-Kwiatek, and Andrey Stolyarov .
This project is partially supported by an Individual Artists Program Grant from the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs & Special Events, as well as a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency, a state agency through federal funds provided by the National Endowment for the Arts.
