HIP-HOP | Black Violin

by

Look no further than Black Violin to give classical music a fresh twist. The duo of Kev Marcus and Wil B. has impressed audiences for more than a decade by merging the seemingly incompatible: hip-hop with fiddles. Strip away the sonic experiments in this hybrid genre, and you still have a showcase of virtuosity. Much of Black Violin's appeal lies in its outreach to students, along with a concert schedule that is worthy of the most grueling road warriors.

Black Violin performs Thursday, November 7, 7:30 p.m. at Kodak Center, 200 West Ridge Road. $31.50-$120. 254-0181. ticketmaster.com; blackviolin.net.
