  • At Age 12, Syreeta Thompson knew the trumpet was the instrument for her. It was the loudest in the band, a way to be heard far above the noise of Chicago's busy streets. Her career has taken her around the world and to the top of the Billboard charts, but it's also taught her a lesson: No matter how hard they blow, or how brilliantly they strum, women still struggle to make noise in the music industry.
  • At this critical moment, as the nation examines gender equality in Hollywood, Silicon Valley, and beyond, Blow Yo Horn is turning up the volume on women in music. Women hold 17% of the top jobs in music, and they represent less than a fifth of all artists working in the business.
  • In this documentary film, you will meet some remarkable female talents, like Syreeta, striving to shatter the sound barrier and make it big. Stick around after the film for a lively panel discussion with Syreeta Thompson, Danielia Cotton, M'Kina Tapscott, and more!
One of the greatest trumpet players in music has just bedazzled her entire trumpet in ten thousand three hundred Swarozski Crystals in preparation for her fifth solo album entitled Taking It Back.

Music fans have been singing praises of Syreeta Thompson for over a decade. Thompson’s “Winner” and “Evolution of a Winner” both debuted #1 in both jazz and gospel charts. 

Syreeta is a graduate of Rutgers University with a Bachelor of Arts in Music and she holds a Masters Degree from NYU in film scoring, jazz composition, and arranging. She also has skillfully written six music curriculums for the East Orange School Districts and is a Master Music Educator with the New Jersey Education Association. 

In addition to preparing for a new music release, Syreeta currently serves as a committee member/Gala chair for Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts Young Patrons. Syreeta is often a red carpet guest within the Lincoln Center Community Galas as well as Hype Magazine Events. 

Amongst Thompson’s other projects she remains focused on paying it forward to the next generation of female musicians with a documentary entitled Blow Yo Horn: Making Music In a Man’s World. The documentary profiles female musicians, music producers, instrumentalists, and songwriters who have yet to have commercial success.

Post-film discussion panelists include:
  • Syreeta Thompson, Director & Musician
  • Danielia Cotton, International Singer and Recording Artist
  • M'Kina Tapscott, Executive Director of Artworks Trenton
  • Elizabeth O'Connell-Ganges, Director of Student Success Initiatives at Rutgers University
