Master violinists Kevin Sylvester and Wil Baptiste celebrate the synergy between hip hop and classical music. Featured on NPR and the PBS News Hour, they’ve partnered with top-tier performers from Alicia Keys to Aerosmith. This appearance with turntable ace DJ TK follows a European tour and their newest release, Stereotypes.
