We Gather: Black Life in Santa Monica told through Music, Visuals, and Narrative is a music-based documentary film produced by Orchestra Santa Monica and created with our talented partners. Set to original music composed by Derrick Skye and performed by OSM musicians, historic to present-day scenes tell moving and compelling stories about Santa Monica’s Black community. To learn more, please read “We Gather” film notes.  To view, play the embedded film on OSM’s website or visit “WE GATHER” on Vimeo.

To show this film and for more information, please contact the OSM office. This film is made possible in part by Art of Recovery, an initiative of the City of Santa Monica Cultural Affairs.

These programs are made possible in part by grants from the City of Santa Monica and the Santa Monica Arts Commission. Orchestra Santa Monica is supported, in part, by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles County Department of Arts and Culture. Funding for our orchestra concerts is also being received from the Music Performance Trust Fund.
