“A compelling sonic concoction.”—Jazziz

Seven-time Grammy Award winner and twice Oscar-nominated film composer Terence Blanchard is also one of jazz’s most esteemed trumpeters. He defies expectations by creating a spectrum of artistic pursuits and has been a consistent force for making powerful musical statements concerning critical moments in American culture. With Fire Shut Up in My Bones, he became the first Black composer to have a work premiered at the Metropolitan Opera. For his first UGA Presents appearance, Blanchard and The E-Collective along with the Turtle Island Quartet perform music from Absence, their most recent album honoring the musical legacy of the late American jazz saxophonist and composer Wayne Shorter.

Join us for a free pre-performance talk by Gregory Satterthwaite and James Weidman in Ramsey Concert Hall from 6:45-7:15 pm.
