We Gather: Black Life in Santa Monica told through Music, Visuals, and Narrative
is an exciting film collaboration between the orchestra and our talented local partners. The project involves new music, artwork, narrative, and images portraying past to present-day experiences of the Santa Monica Black community. Set to original music composed by Derrick Skye and performed by OSM musicians, historic-based scenes tell moving and compelling storylines in an innovative way. Please visit the Vimeo link below to view and read more about “We Gather“.
We invite you to watch our Facebook interview discussing this project, to learn about the music commission, art commission, and unique perspective on Santa Monica Black life, all culminating in the making of this film.
