MUSICAL DUO FUSES CLASSICAL AND HIP-HOP
BY: Karon Warren
Taking the stage at Atlanta Symphony Hall on Dec. 2, Black Violin brings its unique sound, often described as “classical boom,” to Atlanta. Composed of violist Wil B. and violinist Kev Marcus, Black Violin combines their classical training with a dose of hip-hop to create a distinctive multi-genre sound that appeals to all ages. In fact, in addition to a full schedule of public concerts, the pair has performed for more than 100,000 students during the last year through a partnership with the National Association for Music Manufacturers to continue their advocacy for accessible music education. Concertgoers should plan to leave any preconceived expectations at the door. “A Black Violin concert showcases all forms of popular music, but from a violin’s perspective,” says the duo. “The audience can expect a genre-bending concert that promises to educate, entertain and inspire.”
Dec. 2, 8 p.m.
