CEDAR FALLS — Tickets are on sale for the Black Violin performance at 7 p.m. May 2 at the Gallagher Bluedorn Performing Arts Center.
Black Violin features Kev Marcus and Wil B, two classically trained artists who have spent more than a decade working to encourage and empower people. They inspire people of all ages from different ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds to find what connects, rather than divides us. Black Violin uses their unique blend of classical, R&B and Hip Hop music to break down the barriers, empower individuality and encourage progress.
The duo’s most recent album, “Stereotypes,” marks the third LP but major-label debut for hip-hop/classical crossover pair. The record features collaborations with multiple artists and is likely to appeal to hip-hop devotees and those with eclectic tastes. The collection offers 11 original tunes, including the atmospheric and wistful “Addiction” and virtuosic instrumental “Runnin,’” as well as a funky, mostly instrumental cover of the Bacharach-David classic “Walk on By.”
Tickets start at $20, with special youth pricing available. For tickets, visit www.gbpac.com.
