About Live on the Plaza : Black Violin

Join us for the free performance of the year as Columbus Area Arts Council welcomes Black Violin to Columbus. Black Violin are a classically trained South Florida twosome known for their ability to meld highbrow and pop culture, “Brandenburg” and “breakdown,” into a single genre-busting act. Black Violin is Wil B and Kev Marcus, who are classically trained viola and violin players who first met playing in the high school orchestra in Fort Lauderdale. After graduating from college, they joined up as hip-hop studio rats in South Florida, working with several acts before returning to their roots by fusing the two genres in a groundbreaking collaboration that has seen them play their music for everybody from the troops in Iraq to the President’s Inaugural Ball in Washington, DC.
