Terence Blanchard

A Tale of God’s Will (A Requiem for Katrina)

October 3

Don’t miss four-time Grammy® Award winner Terence Blanchard as he returns to the Annenberg Center stage with his newest and most profound project yet. One of jazz’s most gifted trumpeter/composers (famous for his many film scores including Princess and the Frog, Jungle Fever, Malcolm X, Clockers, Summer of Sam and Inside Man), Blanchard performs music from his Grammy®-winning A Tale of God’s Will (A Requiem for Katrina) — a beautifully haunting and impassioned song-cycle about the physical and emotional ravages visited upon the city of New Orleans and its residents by Hurricane Katrina. Featuring 13 original compositions inspired from and featured in Spike Lee’s HBO documentary When the Levees Broke, Blanchard’s masterpiece is an evocative, emotional journey of a city whose spirit, even through the most devastating of circumstances, lives on as told by one of New Orleans’ proudest residents.
