Camilo Rasquin

Camilo Rasquin is a tenor originally from Venezuela with a Masters in Music, from Northeastern Illinois University. When he was fourteen years old, he was fortunate enough to see his first opera performance, Don Giovanni, at the Chicago Lyric Opera. The entire evening of music and performances was an unforgettable experience that has continued to influence him to this day.  

Although he returned to Venezuela with his family when he was still a teenager, he ended up coming back to Chicago, as an adult, to study voice at The Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University, where he got his Bachelor in Music. As a student, he had the opportunity to sing in several church choirs and perform with small opera ensembles. Now that he has been in Chicago for eighteen years, he feels very lucky to continue singing all over the city, while at the same time having the opportunity to work on his own musical projects and take private voice lessons.     

POSTPONED: April Fundraiser

Dear Valued Patrons,
We regret to share that due to concerns relating to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to postpone our April 19th fundraising event, Ecco la Primavera. We expect to reschedule this event for a weekend between July and September – stay posted! Please know this decision does not reduce the Newberry Consort’s need for your support. Indeed, now more than ever, we hope you will consider making a tax-deductible donation to help us not only minimize the losses from this postponement but also contribute to our future events.

If you currently hold a ticket for this event, refunds are available upon request. Otherwise, the cost of your ticket will be applied to the rescheduled event. If you are a current ticket-holder for this event, Consort General Manager Hannah De Priest will be in touch with you directly very soon.
