See Me As I Am

Lincoln Center’s Year-Long Celebration of Terence Blanchard

As a composer, bandleader and trumpeter making music that spans jazz, pop, chamber music and more, with dozens of film scores to his credit (and honors including 7 Grammy Awards and two Oscar nominations), Terence Blanchard claims a singular place among the great artists honored at Lincoln Center. His bold artistry combined with his distinguished work as an educator and arts statesman are unparalleled in their breadth and impact in American culture. Held over 12 months beginning in March 2023, the first cross-campus exploration of a single artist, See Me As I Am: Lincoln Center’s Year-Long Celebration of Terence Blanchard honors that brilliance as it spills across the campus, and beyond. This multi-disciplinary series features a diverse range of art forms—from jazz, opera, chamber music, orchestral music, film scores and more—in collaboration with seven arts organizations across campus: Film at Lincoln Center, Jazz at Lincoln Center, The Juilliard School, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, The Metropolitan Opera, New York Philharmonic, and The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts.
