Fred Lonberg-Holm’s Lightbox Orchestra

Fred Lonberg-Holm in 2002
Image via Wikipedia

Consequence of Sound reviews Lonberg-Holm’s recent performance.

Fred Lonberg-Holm is one of the staples of the Chicago improvised music scene. So, when he puts together an orchestra, you know it’s going to be the cream of the crop, as it were. This past Wednesday, I was lucky enough to catch his Lightbox Orchestra in action, encapsulating a large proportion of the outstanding group of performers that call the Windy City home. As such, this’ll be a review of the show, but also a bit of history on the interconnected squad that set up shop across Chicago.
