NSO: Black Violin

1925

Raised on a steady diet of both Hip Hop and classical music, violinist Kevin Sylvester and violist Wilner Baptiste have built a musical style all their own. The duo has shared the stage with such top names as Kanye West and Aerosmith. They have collaborated with the likes of Wu-Tang Clan, Wyclef Jean and Alicia Keys. Now they join the NSO to showcase their dynamic performance style, bridging infectious beats and lyrical melodies with classical instrumentation and searing technique. For ages 5, up. On stage at the Kennedy Center, Wednesday, April 4, 8 p.m. kennedy-center.org
