Students at Plumosa School of the Arts in Delray Beach are getting excited. On Friday afternoon, Nov. 15, Plumosa students and teachers will take part in a concert and conversation with Black Violin, the classically trained hip hop artists.
Black Violin’s Wil and Kev will share stories of their own personal journey and talk about the impact that music has had on their lives and the importance of establishing a solid foundation of positive values. Wil and Kev are originally from Ft. Lauderdale, but travel internationally performing. In Fact, Black Violin has performed at President Obama’s Inauguration, sold out the New Victory Theater on Broadway, wowed audiences at the legendary Harlem Apollo Theatre, accompanied Alicia Keys at the 2004 Billboard Awards, and collaborated with P.Diddy, Kanye West, 50 Cent, Tom Petty, Aerosmith and the Eagles. Kev Marcus plays the violin, and Wil B plays the viola.
The rest of the school community can experience Black Violin at a benefit for Plumosa School of the Arts Foundation. Black Violin (www.blackviolin.net), will perform their inspired combination of hip hop, rock, and R&B in a concert at the Plumosa School of the Arts on Saturday, Nov. 16 at 8 p.m. in Delray Beach. The concert is part of the Plumosa School of the Arts Foundation’s “Shooting for the Stars” evening to benefit the elementary school’s students.
