About This Performance
The history of music in black film is so rich, it demands a third tribute at the Hollywood Bowl. Following the first two wildly popular installations in 2014 and 2016, Black Movie Soundtrack returns for another evening of music, movies, and more!
Grammy-winning musical director Marcus Miller returns to run the show, and comedian Craig Robinson will reprise his role as host. They’ve got a stellar cast, too: El DeBarge, Dionne Farris, Raphael Saadiq, BeBe Winans, and more will be joined by the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, with the whole ensemble able to turn from soul-stirring to funkified on a dime. Put them together with the themes, scores, and songs that have set the tone for eight decades of cinema, and you’ve got another hit on your hands.
