3 Reasons Not to Miss:

OSCAR nominee for two original scores—BlacKkKlansman (2019) and Da 5 Bloods (2021).

His second opera became the first by an African American composer to premiere at the Met.

Six-time Grammy winner whose work spans film, television, and theatre.

Two-time Oscar nominee and six-time Grammy-winner Terence Blanchard returns for a powerful performance at The Rialto Theatre. Don’t miss the artistic force from one of the world’s greatest trumpeters and composers. Presented together with the Tucson Jazz Festival. 

From his expansive work composing scores for Spike Lee films ranging from the documentary When the Levees Broke to the epic Malcolm X, and the latest Lee film, Da 5 Bloods, Terence Blanchard has interwoven melodies that created strong backdrops to human stories. He received an Oscar nomination and Grammy award for Best Instrumental Composition for Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman (2018). He also received Oscar and British Academy Film Award nominations for his original music for Lee’s Da 5 Bloods (2020). 

More recently, Blanchard has composed his second opera, Fire Shut Up in My Bones, based on the memoir of celebrated writer and The New York Times columnist Charles Blow. The Metropolitan Opera premiered a revived version of Fire Shut Up in My Bones in September 2021 to open their 2021-22 season in New York, making it the first opera composed by an African American composer to premiere at the Met.
