The classically trained, three-time Apollo Award-winning duo will play creative violin renditions of various current hip-hop and R&B songs.
Will-B and Kev Marcus make up the twosome. They are described as having skillfully revolutionized a new category of classical music by combining many
genres of music and sounds.
Friends since middle school, the men, in their early twenties, attended Dillard High School of Performing Arts and Florida State University.
Will-B started with the saxophone in the school band until he was mistakenly put in the string section. Besides violin, he plays the piano, drums, trumpet
and bass guitar and sings.
Marcus began playing the violin as a nine-year-old. He participated with local pop orchestras, such as the Miami Symphony and was a semi-finalist in the
Sphinx National Competition for Blacks and Latinos in 2000.
