Classical music meets hip-hop
Black Violin is composed of classically trained violist and violinist Wil Baptiste and Kev Marcus who combine their classical training and hip-hop influences to create a distinctive multi-genre sound that is often described as a “classical boom.” For more than a dozen years, Black Violin has been all about taking things further, exceeding expectations, and challenging conventions. The classical-meets-hip-hop duo has steadily built a devoted following and a diverse touring base—culminating in such triumphs as two sold-out shows at the Kennedy Center with the National Symphony Orchestra commemorating the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s death— while occupying a musical lane that’s entirely its own.
Based on CDC guidance and the rising number of COVID-19 cases in North Carolina and elsewhere, UNCW is requiring face coverings in indoor settings, including artistic and performance venues.
