The show starts at 7 p.m. Oct. 11.
“Wil B” Baptiste and Kevin “Kev Marcus” Sylvester play the viola and the violin, respectively, and are classically trained. They've appeared on Broadway and recorded with some of the music industry's top talent, including P. Diddy, Kanye West, 50 Cent, Tom Petty, Aerosmith, Aretha Franklin and The Eagles.
On their website, www.blackviolin.net, Baptiste and Sylvester describe their music as, "two parts classical, two parts pop, with a splash of hiphop, served chilled ... a genre-busting collage that pushes the limits of music and dares listeners to think outside the box.”

Black Violin is presented by the partnership of AT&T and Family Services of Racine to bring cultural experience opportunities to our community.
Tickets are $12 to $20 without service fees before the show at the Festival Hall Box Office, 5 Fifth Street, and the night of the show at the Memorial Hall Box Office.
