Terence Blanchard's Fire Shut Up In My Bones: Excerpts in Concert
Apr 9, 2024 - Apr 9, 2024 | 8:00 pm - 8:00 pm
101 6th St
Pittsburgh, PA 15222
Featuring Terence Blanchard, The E-Collective, Turtle Island Quartet & Special Guest visuals by Andrew F. Scott
Co-Presented by Pittsburgh Opera
The production, which was a remount of the premiere at Opera Theatre of Saint Louis in 2019, was performed eight (8) times for almost 30,000 people, not to mention the hundreds of thousands that watched The MET: LIVE in HD in theaters all over the world.
Not only is this a masterwork, but a cultural flashpoint. The message? That opera and classical music is for EVERYONE. In an effort to continue that message, Blanchard and The E-Collective have teamed up with David Balakrishnan and his double GRAMMY-winning Turtle Island Quartet and visual artist Andrew F. Scott to create a concert production that features excerpts from the opera performed by the composer, this incredible ensemble, and guest vocalists Will Liverman and Adrienne Danrich. The music and Scott’s video projections give the audience a look inside the mind of Blanchard, and the gravitational pull of the moment that he has created.
