HIGH POINT, N.C. (Nov. 17, 2022) Nationally-acclaimed string instrumentalists, Black Violin, return to High Point Theatre on Sunday, Nov. 20 at 7:30 p.m. with their Give Thanks Holiday Tour.

For 17 years, the award-winning, classically trained duo – comprised of Wil B. (viola) and Kev Marcus (violin) – has merged string arrangements with modern beats and vocals, all while building bridges in communities along the way.The tour employs playful storytelling, whimsical string melodies and hard-hitting beats from the band’s Grammy-nominated Take the Stairs and Give Thanks albums, respectively. Joining them onstage will be DJ SPS and drummer Nat Stokes. Most recently, Black Violin received their second Grammy nomination for “The Message,” a collaboration with legendary Gospel group, the Blind Boys of Alabama.

Each ticket purchase helps to benefit the Black Violin Foundation, Inc., a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering youth by providing access to quality music programs in their community. The Foundation’s inaugural program, the Musical Innovation Grant for Continuing Education, will provide scholarships to young music students to attend a program of their liking that fosters musical creativity and innovation.

“Black Violin has become a Triad favorite over the past few years, and we’re excited to have them back with us,” said David Briggs, director of the High Point Theatre. “Their energetic approach to classical and hip hop music is sure to make this performance unforgettable for everyone attending.”
