The Grammy-winning drummer and educator will offer masterclasses, public performances and workshops geared at mentoring students who will be the future of jazz.
Following the 65th Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, acclaimed music composer, producer and educator Terri Lyne Carrington’s next stop will be flying to Toronto, where she will engage with York University students and the public as this year’s Oscar Peterson Artist-in-Residence at the School of the Arts, Media, Performance & Design (AMPD), from Feb. 7 to 9.
Carrington was last at York University in June 2022, when she received an honorary doctorate during AMPD’s convocation.
Carrington has won three Grammy awards and was the first woman to win a Grammy for Best Jazz Instrumental Album. As an acclaimed musician, she has a track record for being a dedicated educator and an advocate for racial and gender justice.
