Black Violin

September 28

7:30pm - 9:00pm

Newman Performing Arts Center, Gates Concert Hall

Since starting Black Violin a decade ago, classically trained Florida twosome, Wilner "Wil B" Baptiste and Kevin "Kev Marcus" Sylvester have performed 200 shows a year in 49 states and 36 countries. Their groundbreaking collaboration has seen them play their blend of classical, hip-hop, rock, R&B and bluegrass music for everybody from the troops in Iraq to both the official President's Inaugural Ball and the Kids Inaugural in Washington, DC, where President Barack Obama himself gave each a hearty hand shake.
