Ars Nova



The Ars Nova Forever Telethon is happening! Join us for this epic livestream beginning Friday, December 4, and running nonstop for 24 hours. Featuring more than 100 artists, the Ars Nova Forever Telethon will be our major 2020 benefit, in lieu of an in-person Nova Ball — and the whole world is invited.


Save the date, and be sure to join us as we celebrate Ars Nova’s past and present, while raising funds to support our artists programs throughout the unconventional season.


Our lineup of hosts, guests and performances will be announced soon.
