The Newberry Consort, an early-music, original-instrument chamber ensemble, is a constituent of the Newberry Library's Center for Public Programs. The Consort brings early music to the general public through performances, recordings, and related educational activities. The Consort draws on the Library's holdings in the music of the thirteenth through seventeenth centuries, using original sources and scholarly editions as the bases for its performances. The Consort provides both an important means of public outreach and a window on the Newberry Library's rich music collections.
