Hyannis, MA – Cape Cod Spotlight Series and Innovation Arts and Entertainment are proud to present Black Violin at Hyannis’ Barnstable High School Performing Arts Center, Monday, July 1 at 8:00 pm.

Combining a daunting array of musical styles and influences to produce a signature sound that is not quite maestro, not quite emcee, this group of two classically trained violinists and their DJ is redefining the music world-one string at a time.
With influences ranging from Shostakovich and Bach to Nas and Jay-Z, Black Violin breaks all the rules, blending the classical with the modern to create something rare: a sound that nobody has ever heard, but that everybody wants to feel.

Tickets for Black Violin at the Barnstable High School Performing Arts Center, Monday, July 1 at 8:00 pm are $47.50 - $57.50, and go on sale this Thursday at 10:00 am at www.capecodspotlight.com or by calling 1 (800) 657- 8774.

BLACK VIOLIN
Black Violin is a mash-up of classical, hip-hop, rock, and R&B, featuring the classically trained violin duo of Kevin “Kev Marcus” Sylvester and Wilner “Wil” Baptiste. These powerful musicians offer violin virtuosity within their own genre-bending style of music. Black Violin has collaborated with the likes of P. Diddy, Kanye West, 50 Cent, Tom Petty, Aerosmith, Aretha Franklin, and The Eagles.

Black Violin's most recent record, Stereotypes, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Classical Crossover Chart and #4 on the Billboard R&B Chart. NPR praised the album and band, saying "their music will keep classical music alive for the next generation.
