For his debut as music director of the Chicago Composers Orchestra Sunday night at Constellation, Allen Tinkham created a program best described as free-wheeling. Literally.

During the first work, a selection from Yoko Onos book, Grapefruit, three young musicians on bicycles serenely pedaled around the theaters stage area and lobby. ”

Chicago Composers Orchestra with 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.
