Season 2018/19

The Newberry Consort offers an annual series of early music concerts, serving a diverse community of early music lovers, performers and scholars. Programs are exquisitely performed, intimate, and intellectually compelling. This next season’s offerings include something for everyone, and underscore their conviction that early music—what we sometimes now think of as a rarified musical genre— was music that in its own time belonged to every strata of society, and addressed every human concern.
