Wil Baptiste (viola) and Kevin “Kev Marcus” Sylvester (violin) are classically trained musicians that comprise Black Violin. The duo from Florida blend classical, hip-hop, rock, R&B, and bluegrass music.  The enterprising young duo have performed in 49 states and 36 countries – at SXSW, Harlem Apollo Theatre, on Broadway, Presidential Inaugural Balls, and not one, but three Super Bowls. They have worked with Jordin Sparks, P. Diddy, Tom Petty, Aerosmith and Aretha Franklin. Win your tickets here because you can’t buy them. Their concert on April 30 at The Kessler Theater is already SOLD OUT!
