Thomas Arne and The Newberry Consort

Rule Britannia! Celebrating the Tercentenary of Thomas Arne
The Newberry Consort, Chicago, 1-3 October 2010

The Newberry Consort, Chicago’s premier early music ensemble, kicks off its new season with a tribute to one of eighteenth-century England’s most popular and successful composers. Thomas Arne’s works run the gamut from pleasure garden songs for Vauxhall to the first Italian-style opera seria written in English. Plumbing the Newberry Library collections, we’ve recreated his colorful orchestrations for strings, baroque flute, and continuo to perform our selection of Shakespeare songs, opera arias, and chamber pieces. You’ll be invited to join in singing the evening’s finale!
