Nova presents the music of beloved contemporary masters and classical music’s rising young stars, especially composers with ties to the choir’s home of Los Angeles.

Not limited to just contemporary classical, Nova also performs arrangements of popular music, jazz, musical theater, film music, and music from video games, television series, and animation, all orchestrated with a flair that is contemporary and fun by innovative arrangers active in the choral field.
