Black Violin

Black Violin

Black Violin is the blend of classical, hip hop, rock, R&B, and bluegrass music. In the last decade, Wil Baptiste and Kevin “Kev Marcus” Sylvester have performed an average of 200 shows a year in 49 states and 36 countries. Their groundbreaking collaboration has been enjoyed in concerts for the troops in Iraq and at Barack Obama’s official President’s Inaugural Ball. Individually and together, Black Violin has collaborated with the likes of P. Diddy, Kanye West, 50 Cent, Tom Petty, Aerosmith, Aretha Franklin and The Eagles. This is sure to be one of the hottest concerts of the season. (High-volume performance)

Special guests: members of the SLO Youth Symphony

Free pre-show lecture: 7 pm, Philips Lecture Hall, led by KCBX host Tracy Morgan

“Black Violin upends cultural and musical stereotypes … an unexpected blend of classically trained musicianship and hip-hop beats and inventiveness.”
