Matthew Dean

A tenor “setting the tone” (Pittsburgh Music Alliance) with “affecting line” (Boston Classical Review), Matthew Dean is a sought-after soloist, collaborator, and storyteller in ensembles and oratorios around the country. As artist in residence at Chicago’s Rockefeller Chapel since 2005, the Tribune’s John von Rhein has praised his “firm vocalism and beautiful timbre.” As Evangelist in the Bach Passions and Christmas Oratorio, he has been called “stirring, always attuned to the narrative content” (Chicago Classical Review) in concerts featuring the Haymarket Opera Orchestra. A medievalist and folklorist possessing “ringing sound, cantorial fluency, and elegance” (Chicago On the Aisle), he has studied in Spain and Siberia, and appears and records with The Newberry Consort, The Rose Ensemble, Bella Voce, His Majesty’s Men, Third Coast Baroque, and Schola Antiqua. A “stellar” new music collaborator (Alan Artner), Matt has originated roles in works by James Kallembach and Sven-David Sandström, and collaborated with eighth blackbird and Giordano Dance.

Building community through sound, he leads the international Sounds of Faith initiative, and co-directs The Rookery men’s choir. (http://matthew-dean.com). 

 

 

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.
