Terence Blanchard in Residence

Posted: 09/18/2008

In the first of two visits heíll make to the campus this year as the McCormack Visiting Artist-Scholar in Residence, Grammy Award-winning musician Terence Blanchard met with Scribner Seminar "Human Dilemmas" classes and a senior seminar on "Music and Film," joined a rehearsal of the Small Jazz Ensemble under the direction of Senior Artist-in-Residence John Nazarenko, and spoke at length about his life and art in a public interview conducted by Tom Denny, chair of the Music Department. Blanchard's visit had particular relevance for first-year students, who are studying his Grammy Award-winning CD, ďA Tale of Godís Will (A Requiem for Katrina)Ē in the broader context of the tragedy of Hurricane Katrina and the concept of citizenship. Blanchard will return to the campus for a week next spring in a visit that will include a performance by his quintet on Friday, April 3.
