David Douglass is the new leader of the Newberry Consort, which is ensemble-in-residence here and Chicago’s oldest period-instrument ensemble. Expect him to follow in founder Mary Springfels’s scholarly footsteps. She put together programs of academic rigor and depth that always drew a crowd. No easy feat, that.
