Summary
Two former high school orchestra nerds use their love of Bach and Beethoven to break down stereotypes by reimagining classical music and connecting with new audiences. Violist Wil Baptiste and violinist Kev Marcus tour the country as Black Violin, a group that performs classical and contemporary music on stage with hip-hop tracks and drums for backup. Both men are black, 6’2” and hope to show younger audiences that how you look does not make a difference when it comes to music---PBS.org
