Black Violin

The band Black Violin, led by classically trained musicians Wil B. (viola) and Kev Marcus (violin), uses its unique blend of classical and hip-hop music to overcome stereotypes while encouraging people of all ages, races, and economic backgrounds to join together to break down cultural barriers.  The group has collaborated professionally or performed with multiple well-known artists including Kanye West, Aerosmith, Tom Petty, Wu-Tang Clan, Wyclef Jean, and Alicia Keys. Their most recent album release, Stereotypes, hit #1 on Billboard’s Classical Crossover chart and #4 on Billboard’s R&B Chart.

Black Violin, alongside artists such as Yo-Yo Ma and Elton John, recently joined with Turnaround Arts, a program of the John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts and the President’s Committee, to bring arts education to struggling schools in underserved communities. They have been featured on The Tonight Show, Ellen, The Wendy William’s Show, NPR, and more.

This performance is funded in part by the Maxwell C. Weiner Endowment.
