----- SC/NC - Black Violin with Drums
By Dianna

The Greenville, SC, Peace Center’s youth performance series presents “Black Violin with Drums” on April 16. Two classically trained musicians, Kev Marcus and Wil B, have created the ultimate synergy between classical and contemporary music and with it an incredible opportunity to reach children. They demonstrate through classical, hip hop, jazz and funk music that there are no limits to what the violin can do. This show will be performed twice at 9:50 am and 12:00 pm in the Concert Hall, and is best suited for grades 4 and up. The content connects to Music, Performing Arts, and Multi-Cultural Studies curriculum components. For more information call 864.679.9207 or visit their website.
