The urban/neo-classical musical group Black Violin will perform at Frostburg State University’s Alice R. Manicur Assembly Hall in the Lane University Center on Tuesday, May 6, at 8 p.m. The concert is sponsored by the University Programming Council.
Black Violin, made up of two classically trained musicians, won the Showtime at the Apollo 2005 Legend title, which launched them to international fame. These two gentlemen, KeV Marcus and Wil b, along with their DJ, TK, have created the ultimate synergy between classical and hip-hop music. Their ardor for music and neo-classical, innovative, urban style of violin mixtures and funk has exploded onto the music scene with audiences demanding more.
Black Violin’s notoriety has risen with their amazing performance accompanying Alicia Keys at the 2004 Billboard Awards and by performing with some of the industry’s biggest artists, including Aerosmith, P. Diddy, Jessica Simpson, Lil Kim, Brooke Hogan, The Eagles, Stevie Nicks, Linkin Park, 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks, Nas, Fabulous, Ciara, Fat Joe, Lil Wayne, Tony Touch and Miami’s own Iconz and Wrecognize.
