Black Violin performance at The Whiting
FLINT — The Whiting Auditorium, 1241 E Kearsley Street, hosts Black Violin May 5 at 8 p.m. To most people, jazz, hip-hop, funk, and classical are musical genres. But to revolutionary music group Black Violin, they’re nothing but ingredients. Combining a daunting array of musical styles and influences to produce a signature sound that is not quite maestro, not quite emcee, this group of two classically trained violinists and their DJ is redefining the music world one string at a time.
