Frequency Series proudly welcomes back the Chicago Composers Orchestra in a special concert with the Grant Wallace Band


Artistic collaboration has become an important if not essential part of Chicago Composers Orchestra’s (CCO) programmatic vision. This is why we are very excited about teaming up with Grant Wallace Band (GWB) for an exciting performance of works written and performed by its members with CCO. 

Grant Wallace Band is a trio of composer-performers weaving a diaphanous sound from threads of new music, modern jazz, and old-time folk styles. Composing through a uniquely collaborative process, Ben Hjertmann (voice/mandolin), Chris Fisher-Lochhead (viola), and Luke Gullickson(piano/guitar) also draw inspiration from outsider artists including the band’s namesake. 

The program will consist of two sets. The opening set will feature the music of Anthony Davis and a gallery of performance pieces by Yoko Ono from Grapefruit. The second set will feature all new music written by GWB performed with CCO.
