As if we weren’t excited enough for Black Violin to return to War Memorial Auditorium on May 9, it was recently announced that they will be joined by thirty-one students from Metro Nashville Public Schools and Music City Strings!
Wil B. and Kev Marcus of Black Violin combine their classical training and hip-hop influences to create a distinctive multi-genre sound that is often described as “classical boom”. They have shared the stage with top names including Kanye West, Aerosmith, Tom Petty, and more. Now they will share the stage with some of Nashville’s most talented students!
The students will participate in a 90-minute workshop with Black Violin to rehearse for a special performance at the show later that evening.
In addition to their public concerts, Black Violin has performed for more than 100,000 students in the past year throughout North America and Europe. The duo is endorsed by Yamaha Music and has partnered with the National Association for Music Manufacturers to continue their advocacy for accessible music education.
