Power to the People!
The Movie Music of Spike Lee & Terence Blanchard

The lush, emotional music at the heart of Spike Lee’s classic films comes to life at Walt Disney Concert Hall.

About this Performance

The Movie Music of Spike Lee & Terence Blanchard showcases the long and fruitful collaboration between the uncompromising filmmaker and the brilliant trumpeter and bandleader whose lush scores augment the humanitarian spirit and political heart of Lee’s movies. This incredible music comes to life at the hands of Blanchard’s E-Collective and guest vocalists, with specially curated images of the films projected throughout the performance.

The Power to the People Festival is generously supported in part by Margaret Morgan and Wesley Phoa, GRoW @ Annenberg, the Frank Gehry Fund for Creativity, and by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
