The emotional music at the heart of Spike Lee’s movies, comes to life at the hands of its composer, trumpeter Terence Blanchard together with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, conducted by Thomas Wilkins, and with the help of special guests.


This event will showcase 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.
