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.
