About the tour
Fresh off the success of the inaugural Levitt National Tour, Levitt Pavilions is gearing up for the 2015 Tour featuring the critically acclaimed, genre-busting act Black Violin. Layering strings with hip-hop, classical, rock, R&B and even bluegrass, Black Violin dazzles audiences and charms critics across the globe.
Taking place during June and July, the Tour will stop at six Levitt locations—including Los Angeles and Pasadena, Calif.; Memphis; Arlington, Texas; Bethlehem, Pa; and Denver (where audiences will receive a taste of what's to come when their Levitt Pavilion opens in 2016). Audiences can expect a party atmosphere at these family-friendly shows, filled with unexpected surprises that will get everyone on their feet dancing. In addition to the free shows, Black Violin will participate in post-show Q& A's with the audience and will lead community outreach activities with youth and seniors, drawing on past experiences to spur their creativity.

About Black Violin
“Black Violin works hard, but makes it all look like play.” ---The New York Times
Black Violin’s groundbreaking blend of classical and contemporary has made them in-demand collaborators with many celebrated artists including Kanye West, Tom Petty, Aretha Franklin, The Eagles, Aerosmith and 50 Cent. Appealing to diverse audiences of all generations, they have entertained the troops in Iraq, were featured at the President’s Inaugural Ball, and have wowed audiences at the legendary Apollo and major music festivals. Reflecting their ever-growing popularity, SXSW voted Black Violin one of the “Top 5 New Bands” in 2013.
Along with pushing musical boundaries, Black Violin is committed to turning young fans onto their own potential. “We encourage kids to think creatively…Expand your mind. Once we get their attention with the music, that’s the message we want to deliver.” This dynamic duo seamlessly bridges the worlds of classical and popular music, inspiring all ages with their creativity and positive message.
