BLACK VIOLIN's Wilner "Wil B" Baptiste (viola) and Kevin "Kev Marcus" Sylvester (violin) are on a perception-changing, stereotype-shattering mission.

They will perform at the Ohio Theatre Sept. 23, starting at 8 p.m.

Classically trained musicians who met as high school orchestra nerds, today they play genre-bending music, radically fusing hip-hop and pop with classical to create a kaleidoscope of sounds uniquely their own.They have opened for or collaborated with such diverse artists as Kanye West, 50 Cent, Aerosmith, Tom Petty, Wu-Tang Clan, Linkin Park, Wyclef Jean and Alicia Keys, and their major label debut, Stereotypes, was released last year to critical acclaim.
