Event

Terence Blanchard CANCLED
Real artists are originals who have a calling. Witness Terence Blanchard who early on made a name for himself as a top tier jazz trumpeter from New Orleans and who has gone on to enjoy a multifaceted career both in the jazz camp and beyond. He's not only a five-time Grammy Award winner, but he's also a renowned film-score and soundtrack composer (most recently for George Lucas's 2012 Red Tails film about the Tuskegee Airmen).

Add to those achievements Blanchard's recent success composing for Broadway (including the score for the world premiere of playwright Stephen Adly Guirgis'sThe Motherf**ker With a Hat starring Chris Rock and the Emily Mann-directed revival of Tennessee Williams's Pulitzer Prizewinning play A Streetcar Named Desire); an opera commissioned by Opera St. Louis (a poignant tale of welterweight boxing champion Emile Griffith with librettist Michael Cristofer); a speaking role as the musical voice of Louis the Alligator in the animated feature The Princess and the Frog; becoming the artistic director of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra's jazz series; and after serving as the artistic director of the prestigious Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz for a decade since 2000, being named in 2011 the artistic director of the Henri Mancini Institute, the program at the University of Miami Frost School of Music. In addition, Blanchard serves as the artist in residence at the Detroit Jazz Festival over the Labor Day long weekend in 2012.
