  • Black Violin, featuring Wil B and Kev Marcus
    02/05/15 06:15 PM - 02/05/15 09:30 PM

    Black Violin, two classically trained string players (Wil B and Kev Marcus), introduce a groundbreaking blend of classical, hip-hop, R&B, and even bluegrass music that melds highbrow and pop culture into a single genre-busting act. The pair has toured and collaborated with the likes of P. Diddy, Kanye West, 50 Cent, Tom Petty, Aerosmith, Aretha Franklin, and The Eagles. Live, they are accompanied by their potent band featuring ace turntable whiz DJTK (Dwayne Dayal), drummer Beatdown (Jermaine McQueen), and cellist Joe Cello (Joseph Valbrun). 

    A pre-show reception will be held in Hobart Manor at 6:15pm before the 7:30pm show in the Shea Center for Performing Arts. Tickets are $30 and include orchestra seat and pre-show reception.*

    *Tickets are limited - alumni may purchase up to (4) tickets each.
