Black Violin

Saturday, January 26, 2019 at 3:00pm to 5:00pm

Classical music meets hip hop in the groundbreaking duo Black Violin and their Classical Boom Tour, blurring the lines between genre, race and gender with its unique, family-friendly fusion of groove and strings. Violist Wil B. and violinist Kev Marcus are classically-trained musicians bringing hip-hop samples and a party atmosphere to their dueling strings. Get up and get down to an unforgettable fusion of strings, beats and rhythms as Black Violin delivers its genre-shattering sound: classical boom.
