This event is sure to be a real crowd pleaser as virtuoso violinists Wil B and Kev Marcus meld highbrow and pop culture through a fusion of classical, jazz, hip-hop, blues and R&B. Joining the classically trained violinists is DJ TK on turntables and together the trio smashes musical stereotypes and enthralls lovers of Bach and Beyoncé. Wil B. explains, "We encourage kids to think creatively, to take what they love doing and try to come up with something no one has ever done before. And that doesn't just apply to playing violin or even music, but whatever it is you decide to do. Expand your mind. Once we get their attention with the music, that's the message we want to deliver."
