Black Violin to Return to the Orpheum This Spring; Tickets on Sale Friday!
The Orpheum Theatre has announced the return of the popular string duo BLACK VIOLIN on Friday, April 27, 2018 after a successful engagement in April 2016.
Single and group tickets for this highly anticipated one night engagement will go on sale Friday December 15 at 10am.
Black Violin is currently writing and recording their next studio album, due out in 2018. The band'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."
Black Violin is composed of classically trained violist and violinist Wil B. and Kev Marcus, who combine their classical training and hip-hop influences to create a distinctive multi-genre sound that is often described as "classical boom." Black Violin has shared stages with top names including Kanye West, Aerosmith and Tom Petty, and has creatively collaborated with the likes of Wu-Tang Clan, Wyclef Jean and Alicia Keys.
The duo composed music for the television series Pitch which debuted on FOX in 2016, in addition to appearances on HBO's Ballers, The Tonight Show, Tavis Smiley Show, The Wendy Williams Show, and The Ellen Show.
In addition to their public concerts, Black Violin has performed for more than 100,000 students in the past 12 months throughout North America and Europe. The band is endorsed by Yamaha Music, and has partnered with the National Association for Music Manufacturers (NAMM) to continue their advocacy for accessible music education.
