Performing live publicly for the first time in over a year, Erb Jazz Chair and recently Oscar-nominated composer Terence Blanchard returns to the Orchestra Hall stage to perform the music of Wayne Shorter and new original music. Blanchard celebrates both the brilliance of Shorter’s legacy and the inspiration he has given Blanchard, influencing his ever-expanding amalgam of music and storytelling.
Blanchard will unite his internationally acclaimed band The E-Collective, featuring young musical pioneers Charles Altura on guitar, Fabian Almazan on piano and synthesizers, Oscar Seaton on drums, and David “DJ” Ginyard on bass, with the double-GRAMMY-winning Turtle Island Quartet with David Balakrishnan on violin, Gabriel Terracciano on violin, Jeremy Kittle on viola, and Malcolm Parson on cello.
*Please note: The DSO does not appear on this program.
The program will be available for on-demand viewing for (2) two weeks after the livestream event.
