Black Violin: Return to the Apollo

Black Violin is led by classically trained string players Wil B. (viola) and Kev Marcus (violin). Joining them onstage are DJ SPS & drummer Nat Stokes. The band uses their unique blend of classical & hip-hop music, often described as “classical boom," to overcome stereotypes & encourage people of all ages, races, & economic backgrounds to join together to break down cultural barriers.

Black Violin is currently writing & recording their next studio album expected to be released late 2019. Their last record, Stereotypes, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Classical Crossover Chart and #4 on the Billboard R&B Chart. NPR praised the album & band, saying “their music will keep classical music alive for the next generation.” Some of their creative collaborations include Kanye West, Wu-Tang Clan, Wyclef Jean, Lil Wayne, & Alicia Keys.

Black Violin’s Impossible Tour spreads the message that anything is possible & there are no limits to what one can achieve, regardless of circumstance.
