The 2015 Levitt National Tour presents critically acclaimed, genre-busting pioneers of urban meets highbrow, Black Violin. Black Violin’s groundbreaking blend of classical and contemporary has made them in-demand collaborators with many celebrated artists including Kanye West, Tom Petty, Aretha Franklin, The Eagles, Aerosmith and 50 Cent. Appealing to diverse audiences of all generations, they have entertained the troops in Iraq, performed at the 2013 Presidential Inaugural Ball, and have wowed audiences at the legendary Apollo and major music festivals. Reflecting their ever-growing popularity, SXSW voted Black Violin one of the “Top 5 New Bands” in 2013.
Along with pushing musical boundaries, Black Violin is committed to turning young fans onto their own potential. “We encourage kids to think creatively…Expand your mind. Once we get their attention with the music, that’s the message we want to deliver.” This dynamic duo seamlessly bridges the worlds of classical and popular music, inspiring all ages with their creativity and positive message.
