Black Violin: Classical Boom Tour

10/14/2017 8:00 PM
Kuss Auditorium

Tickets: $25 - $60 | (Plus ticket and facility fees.)

Wil B. and Kev Marcus are back! Black Violin is composed of classically trained violist and violinist Wil B. and Kev Marcus, who combine their classical training and hip-hop influences to create a distinctive multi-genre sound that is often described as “classical boom.” Their skillful playing and fresh approach wowed Springfield audiences last season and we are excited to have them back!

After serving as the house band for the ESPN’s hosted 82nd Annual Heisman Memorial Trophy Presentation, the network recently selected Black Violin’s track “Stereotypes” to promote the upcoming 2017 US Open. The tennis tournament will be exclusively televised on ESPN Aug. 28 - Sept. 10, with television and online commercials featuring Black Violin airing now.

In addition to their performance, BLACK VIOLIN will host a workshop with members of the Springfield Symphony Youth Orchestra and Urban Strings Columbus (http://urbanstrings.squarespace.com/). On the night of the show, the youth will perform an encore on stage with Black Violin!

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

This presentation is supported by the Arts Midwest Touring Fund, a program of Arts Midwest that is funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, with additional contributions from Ohio Arts Council and the Crane Group.
