Terence Blanchard and the Cuyahoga Community College Foundation


As part of a two-year artist residency at Cuyahoga Community College, award-winning trumpeter Terence Blanchard will create a new work inspired by the Voting Rights Act of 1965 entitled, OUR VOICES: DEMOCRACY RE:visited. Blanchard will work with students, churches, voting rights advocates, and local musicians in a series of voting rights forums, formal and improvised musical performances, and workshops to develop his composition. The preliminary work will be presented at Tri-C JazzFest 2017, and the world premiere of the final composition in April 2018.
