Whiplash in Concert makes its World Premiere in Boston on Saturday, October 28th

The world premiere of WHIPLASH IN CONCERT will debut at the Orpheum Theatre in Boston on Saturday, October 28th. Oscar®-winning composer Justin Hurwitz will conduct his score performed by an 18-piece jazz big band ensemble, accompanying the screening of the original film. Whiplash is written and directed by Damien Chazelle, who won the Oscar® for Best Director for La La Land, his second collaboration with Hurwitz.

Whiplash tells the story of a promising young drummer (Miles Teller) who enrolls at a music conservatory, only to fall under the wing of a cut-throat instructor (JK Simmons) who will stop at nothing to awaken his student’s true potential. The intense relationship between mentor and protégé is punctuated with a rich and diverse score and soundtrack that highlights the challenges of performing music at a world-class level. Whiplash won three Academy Awards® including Best Sound Mixing, Best Film Editing and Best Supporting Actor for Simmons.

“It’s going to be a thrill and a high-wire act to perform all of the jazz big band and incredible drum solos in sync with the movie,” said Hurwitz. “Also, I just love this movie, have been very affected by the movie, and am excited for people to revisit Damien’s brilliant writing and directing on a big screen.”  

WHIPLASH IN CONCERT is a co-production between Cutting Edge Group and Hurwitz Concerts in association with Bold Films. Following the world premiere in Boston, WHIPLASH IN CONCERT will debut in select locations across the globe including Toronto on October 30th followed by a festival premiere in Seoul in November.

“Cutting Edge was honored to be a small part of the original film production of Whiplash during which we got to experience firsthand the power and genius of the film’s soundtrack,” said Tara Finegan, COO of Cutting Edge Media Music. “I am delighted that we can now bring the film and its music to fans around the world in a live concert event that gives audiences a front row seat to these awe-inspiring musical moments.”

“Watching Whiplash In Concert with Justin Hurwitz leading a live orchestra is a unique and memorable way to experience this iconic film,” according to the film’s producer, Bold Films.
