How much do I love this man!!

Something's happening at the Hollywood Bowl this Sunday that has never happened before. Thomas Wilkins, principal conductor of the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, will be joined by Maestro Derrick Hodge as the two conduct the Re-Collective Orchestra, marking the first ever performance of an all-Black symphony orchestra in the Bowl's 100-year history. It's all part of Juneteenth: A Global Celebration of Freedom, a musical celebration of Black freedom and excellence. Featured performers include Earth Wind and Fire, The Roots, Khalid, Anthony Hamilton and more.
