*ONLINE RELEASE May 22, 2022* – We Gather: Black Life in Santa Monica told through Music, Visuals, and Narrative is an exciting film collaboration between the orchestra and 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.

With growing interest in the film, additional licensing was arranged to support public showings of We Gather in museums, classrooms, libraries, etc. Below are some example placements:

  • Featured ~6 weeks on KUSC’s Culture Blog Play On, California
  • Online presentation by Santa Monica History Museum
  • Screenings at the California African American Museum (Exposition Park) and Calvary Baptist Church of Santa Monica

For more information, please contact the OSM officeThis 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.
