The Black Violin Experience Tour Student Matinee showcases the two-time GRAMMY-nominated duo Black Violin, brought to life by Kev Marcus and Wil Baptiste. This is a concert performance that boldly merges classical sounds and exhilarating hip-hop beats, uniting students with a message of hope and possibility. Students will be immersed in a sound that transcends categories and celebrates ingenuity and ambition, proving anything is possible.
On stage, Kev Marcus gives an electrifying violin performance along with Wil Baptiste’s magnetizing viola and vocal performance. Joining them are Nat Stokes on drums, DJ SPS on the turntable, and Liston Gregory on keys. Together they are reconceptualizing what a violin concert looks and sounds like, building bridges to a place where Mozart, Marvin Gaye, and Kendrick Lamar harmoniously coexist. Black Violin invites you to think outside of the box.
