Oscar nominee, six-time Grammy Award-winner, and the DSO's Fred A. Erb Jazz Creative Director Chair Terence Blanchard has been a consistent artistic force for expressing powerful musical statements about the American experience.

He has composed a rich, expansive repertory of scores for Spike Lee films, from the epic Malcolm X and When the Levees Broke—a documentary about the devastation from Hurricane Katrina to Blanchard's hometown of New Orleans—to Lee’s most recent film, Da 5 Bloods. Blanchard interweaves melodies that create strong backdrops to human stories.
