*ONLINE RELEASE May 22, 2022* – We Gather: Black Life in Santa Monica told through Music, Visuals, and Narrative is a music-based documentary created by 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.
