Terence Blanchard to perform
Sunday, May 20 at Grandel Theatre

Trumpeter Terence Blanchard and his band The E-Collective are returning to St. Louis to perform at 8:00 p.m. Sunday, May 20 at the Grandel Theatre.

Blanchard (pictured) last played in St. Louis in June 2015 at Jazz at the Bistro, and was a frequent visitor here in 2012 and 2013 as Opera Theatre St. Louis was preparing for the world premiere of his opera Champion in June 2013.

His most recent jazz album Breathless was released in May, 2015 on Blue Note, and was nominated for a 2016 Grammy Award for "Best Jazz Instrumental Album." A prolific film composer, Blanchard also released a soundtrack album for the film The Comedian, directed by Taylor Hackford and starring Robert DeNiro, in February of this year.

Tickets for Terence Blanchard and the E-Collective are priced from $35 to $75, and will go on sale via Metrotix at 10:00 a.m. next Friday, November 17. However, there's an online pre-sale happening now, which can be accessed by going here and entering the promo code BLANCHARD.
