Black Violin (www.blackviolin.net), the classically-trained hip hop duo, will perform their inspired combination of hip hop, rock, and R&B in a concert at the Plumosa School of the Arts on Saturday, November 16 in Delray Beach. The concert is part of the Plumosa School of the Arts Foundationâ€™s â€œShooting for the Starsâ€ evening to benefit the elementary schoolâ€™s students.
Black Violin has performed at President Obamaâ€™s Inauguration, sold out the New Victory Theater on Broadway, wowed audiences at the legendary Harlem Apollo Theatre, accompanied Alicia Keys at the 2004 Billboard Awards, and collaborated with P.Diddy, Kanye West, 50 Cent, Tom Petty, Aerosmith and the Eagles. Kev Marcus, who plays the violin, and Will B, who plays the viola, are both Fort Lauderdale natives.
â€œWe are so fortunate that an act of this caliber will be performing in Delray Beach for an exciting community event,â€ said James Mueller, president of the Plumosa School of the Arts Foundation. â€œThis talented duo will inspire the students of Plumosa. Their success fits into our schoolâ€™s mission in promoting the vital importance of arts education for children and securing the resources to make it happen. Funds raised will directly benefit the kids at Plumosa School of the Arts through our Foundation.â€
On Friday afternoon, November 15, Plumosa students and teachers will take part in a concert and conversation with the artists. Will and Kev will share stories of their own personal journeyâ€”about the impact that music has had on their lives and the importance of establishing a solid foundation of positive values.
The concert will be held at the Plumosa School of the Arts Auditorium, 2501 Seacrest Blvd., Delray Beach. Tickets are $35 for general admission and $75 for VIP and can be purchased at: www.plumosafoundation.org.
