On this edition of The Arts Section, host Gary Zidek takes a closer look at a Chicago-based ensemble that will be performing pieces of music from a medieval songbook that was unexpectedly discovered in 2014. The Newberry Consort’s David Douglass has been working on interpreting the Leuven Songbook. Gary visits one of Chicago’s only authentic Peruvian restaurants, a hidden gem in the Rogers Park neighborhood known as the Taste of Peru. The Dueling Critics will stop by to review Second City’s new mainstage revue, Algorithm Nation or The Static Quo. A little later, Gary previews the 76th annual Golden Globes. What films will walk away as frontrunners for Academy Awards? And Gary revisits his conversation with acclaimed author Rebecca Makkai. The Chicago native’s novel, THE GREAT BELIEVERS, is one of the best reviewed books of 2018.
