Black Violin

Violinists Wil Baptiste and Kev Marcus began playing together in their South Florida high school orchestra class. After graduation, the pair attended different colleges but soon reunited to combine their love for classical music and hip hop for an innovative and distinct creation. The project, Black Violin, has often been referred to as “classical boom,” and Pittsburgh has a chance to experience the genre-bending sound when the duo’s Impossible Tour lands at the Byham Theater. Black Violin has collaborated with Kanye West, Wu-Tang Clan, Wyclef Jean, Lil Wayne, and Alicia Keys; composed music for FOX’s Pitch; and made appearances on HBO’s Ballers, The Tonight Show, The Wendy Williams Show, and The Ellen Show.
