Black Violin: Classical Boom Tour
- Who they are: Wilner “Wil B” Baptiste and Kevin “Kev Marcus” Sylvester, an immensely talented pair of classically trained string instrumentalists who named their act after an album by famed jazz violinist Stuff Smith
- Their sound: elegant string duets underscored by funk and hip-hop beats, leading to collaborations with everyone from Alicia Keys and Kanye West to Kendrick Lamar, 50 Cent, and even The Eagles
- What the press says: “Sometimes they play with the intense seriousness of orchestral soloists; at others they fiddle as if at a hoedown; at still others they strum the violin and viola like guitars…Black Violin works hard, but makes it all look like play.” — The New York Times

About Veterans Memorial Auditorium
Veterans Memorial Auditorium—The Vets to its friends—is a poster child for patience paying off. Conceived by the Rhode Island Freemasons in the 1920s, the theater was well on its way to completion when the Great Depression ground construction to a halt in 1929. It wasn't until the closing years of World War II that the community banded together to finish the 1,900-seat complex. The theater finally opened in 1950, and in the 60+ years since has seen such greats as Pavarotti, Nureyev, and Tony Bennett play its massive proscenium stage.
