A Musical Banquet: April 7th

Halim Time & Glass Museum, Evanston

Guests will be serenaded by Consort musicians as they enjoy an elegant four-course dinner inspired by a famed 18th-century French cookbook: Le Festin joyeux. While chandeliers and colorful stained glass by Louis Comfort Tiffany glitter in the candlelight, guests may bid for exclusive artistic and cultural items during a live auction.

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.
