Terence Blanchard

Legendary trumpeter

Terence Blanchard has been a consistent artistic force for making powerful musical statements concerning painful American tragedies — past and present. He stands tall as one of jazz’s most-esteemed trumpeters and defies expectations by creating a spectrum of artistic pursuits. A seven-time Grammy Winner and twice Oscar-nominated film composer, Blanchard is the second African-American composer to be nominated twice in the original score category at the 2022 Academy Awards.
