Description

TWO SHOWS! 4:30pm and 8pm
“Their music will keep classical music alive for the next generation.” – NPR

To most people, jazz, hip-hop, funk, and classical are musical genres. But to revolutionary music group Black Violin, they’re nothing but ingredients. Combining a daunting array of musical styles and influences to produce a signature sound that is not quite maestro, not quite emcee, this group of two classically trained violinists and their DJ is redefining the music world-one string at a time

With influences ranging from Shostakovich and Bach to Nas and Jay-Z, stereotype-smashing Black Violin breaks the rules, blending classical, hip-hop, rock, R&B, and bluegrass to create a sound they call “classical boom.” With Kevin Sylvester and Wilner Baptiste, a.k.a. Kev Marcus and Wil B. on violin and viola, alongside DJ SPS and drummer Nat Stokes, Black Violin uses their music to overcome stereotypes and encourage people of all ages, races, and economic backgrounds to join together to break down cultural barriers.

Black Violin have announced an online classroom masterclass series to provide a free educational tool for those interested in music as we navigate through challenging time. The series will provide an inspiring and interactive means of teaching music to people across the globe by Black Violin’s founders, Kev Marcus and Wil Baptiste. Kev and Wil spent the first ten years of their careers teaching masterclasses in schools across the country, in additional to their ongoing education outreach to over 100,000 students each year. Through the Black Violin Masterclass series, Kev and Wil are honored to continue their work in education and give back to the student community.
