Jeremy David Ward

As a player of bass instruments, Jeremy David Ward specializes in playing well with others. Whether Renaissance dance and consort music with the Newberry Violin Band or continuo with his 17th-century winds and strings band Rook, or the one-man rhythm-bass-harmony-countermelody in his 18th-century Scottish fiddle duo with award-winning fiddler Tim Macdonald, or modern cello collaborations with singer/songwriter Fernando Ortega, Jeremy delights in crafting foundations on which an ensemble can thrive. He is also the principal cellist of the Chicago Arts Orchestra which performs newly recovered pieces of the Mexican Baroque repertoire. Jeremy has also soloed vocally with the Newberry Consort as well as his duo Tim & Jeremy. He has been a founder and organizer for the last three years of the Chicago folk music showcase The Midwest Sing and Stomp. He led a weekend residency at Oberlin Conservatory of Music in historical performance, and is in his 4th year of residency as a Guest Lecturer in Early Music at Wheaton Conservatory of Music. He is also on faculty at Triton College where he teaches cello and other music classes.

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.
You can always donate to the Newberry Consort online  or via check. Our mailing address is The Newberry Consort, P.O. Box 60212, Chicago, IL, 60660-0212. Please reach out to if you have any questions or leave a message at 773-669-7335 and one of our staff will be in touch with you.
We appreciate your understanding and very much look forward to welcoming you to Newberry Consort concerts in the future. Till then, wishing you all good health and safety in these uncertain times.
