Black Violin Impossible Tour
Wednesday, May 15, 2019, 8:00 pm
Black Violin is led by classically trained string players Wil B. (viola) and Kev Marcus (violin). Joining them onstage are DJ SPS & drummer Nat Stokes. The band uses their unique blend of classical & hip-hop music, often described as “classical boom," to overcome stereotypes & encourage people of all ages, races, & economic backgrounds to join together to break down cultural barriers.
Black Violin is currently writing & recording their next studio album expected to be released late 2019.
Their last record, Stereotypes, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Classical Crossover Chart and #4 on the Billboard R&B Chart. NPR praised the album & band, saying “their music will keep classical music alive for the next generation.” Some of their creative collaborations include Kanye West, Wu-Tang Clan, Wyclef Jean, Lil Wayne, & Alicia Keys. In 2016, Black Violin composed music for FOX’s hit TV series Pitch and the group has made appearances on HBO’s Ballers, The Tonight Show, The Wendy Williams Show, The Ellen Show and the 2016 Heisman Trophy Presentation on ESPN.
Black Violin’s Impossible Tour spreads the message that anything is possible & there are no limits to what one can achieve, regardless of circumstance. The focus is positivity and encouragement. As Wil Baptiste puts it, “When you come to a Black Violin concert, there are so many people in the audience experiencing something together. To me, that's what our show does, it brings people together. Not only that, you're being inspired, you're being uplifted, you're able to see something you probably have never seen before."
