Newberry Consort

Chicago’s Premier Early Music Ensemble

The Newberry Consort brings together singers and instrumentalists of the highest caliber to create accessible and historically informed performances of Medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque music. We inspire audiences, musicians, and scholars by providing a window into earlier times and cultures through performance, education, and research.

The Newberry Consort has been delighting audiences for three decades. Directed by David Douglass and Ellen Hargis, the ensemble plumbs the Newberry Library’s vast music collection and assembles a star-studded roster of local and international artists to present world-class performances of music from the 13th to the 18th centuries... and occasionally beyond!
Practitioners of “historically informed performance,” also referred to as “early music,” The Newberry Consort brings to the stage the sounds, stories, and spirit of times past. 

The Consort performs from its vast range of repertories in a series of programs in the Chicago area, and tours nationally and internationally.  The Consort is affiliated with the Newberry Library Center for Renaissance Studies, offering interdisciplinary classes in the humanities to the Center’s consortium of colleges and universities.  The Consort also serves as an ensemble-in-residence at both the University of Chicago and Northwestern University, interacting with college students in both the classroom and in performing ensembles.
