BV20: Then & Now

Buy Tickets

Experience every step of the evolution of Black Violin in this unforgettable evening celebrating their 20th anniversary with a blend of new music and revitalized classics.

The BV20: Then & Now show serves as a testament to the duo’s growth, passion, and dedication to their craft, which has earned two Grammy nominations for Best Contemporary Instrumental Album and Best Americana Performance.

In addition to founding members Kev Marcus and Wil Baptiste, Nat Stokes will join on drums, Liston Gregory on the keys, and DJ SPS will be at the turntable, blending hip-hop beats and classical performance into an experience that defies expectations and redefines genres.

The group plays roughly 200 shows a year, many of which are performances for young, low-income students in urban communities. More than 100,000 youth have been able to watch a Black Violin performance, all with the goal of challenging stereotypes and preconceived notions of what a “classical musician” looks like and sounds like.

“The stereotypes are always there, embedded so deep in our culture,” says member Wil Baptiste. “Just by nature of our existence, we challenge those ideas. It’s a unique thing that brings people together, who aren’t usually in the same room, and in the current climate, it’s good to bring people together.”
