BLACK VIOLIN IN CONCERT - PHILLY

This one's already sold out, but you should know what you're missing on Oct 11.

They play Bach. They play hip-hop. Classically trained string powerhouses Wil Baptiste (viola) and Kev Marcus (violin) bust genres, shatter stereotypes and unite audiences. Multiple Showtime at the Apollo winners who have collaborated with Kanye West, 50 Cent, Tom Petty, Aretha Franklin and The Eagles, this string duo keeps the party rolling with turntable whiz DJ SPS and a drummer. Classical, hip-hop, rock and R&B sound so good together.

Just in case any seats open up, click through for more info.
