The combination of Hip Hop and Classical is "Black Violin."

The “The Schaefer Center Presents…” performance series, presented by Appalachian State University’s Office of Arts and Cultural Programs, concludes its 2017-18 season with Black Violin: Classical Boom Tour on Friday, April 20, 7 p.m. at the Schaefer Center for the Performing Arts.

Black Violin is led by classically trained string players Wil B. (viola) and Kev Marcus (violin) and joined onstage by DJ SPS and drummer Nat Stokes.

The band uses their unique blend of classical and hip-hop music to overcome stereotypes while encouraging people of all ages, races, and economic backgrounds to join together to break down cultural barriers.

Tickets are $30 for adults, $25 for Appalachian faculty/staff and retired faculty/staff and $5 for students and children.
