About This Event

My Brightest Diamond, the chamber pop band initiated in 2006 by Shara Nova, blends thetalents of a classically trained vocalist and self-taught multi-instrumentalist and composer,crafting dazzling, shapeshifting music. With each song written and album released, she has resisted the conventions of genre, blending elements of rock, art pop, and chamber music into a sound totally her own.

In 2024, Shara has appeared in the stage show of Illinoise as a musical performer, singing and playing guitar in the musical based on Sufjan Stevens’ album of the same name, on which she originally appeared. Nova's recent collaboration as co-composer and featured vocalist with the string orchestra A Far Cry on Nonesuch / New Amsterdam Records' The Blue Hour garnered critical acclaim, receiving a Grammy nomination for Best Engineered Classical Album and securing a spot on NPR's esteemed Top 10 Albums of 2022. The single “Black Sheep'' was released in summer 2023 ahead of a fall tour with Wilco, and My Brightest Diamond will release a new album in the fall of 2024.
Beyond her music Ms. Nova contributes to the creative community through her SubStack
newsletter, "Songs In 4 Dimensions," offering insights into the realms of songwriting, creativity,and music production.
