The Black Violin Foundation is a non profit organization dedicated to empowering youth by working with them in their communities to provide access to quality music programs that encourage creativity. Our long term goal is to empower youth to color outside of the lines and push the boundaries of music through innovation.
BVF is an extension of the vision of Kev Marcus & Wil Baptiste. As young musicians during school they would study classical compositions, but after school they would play Tupac, Wu-tang and whatever else was hot at the time. It is the blending of genres fused with their classical training that gives Black Violin their unique sound. Our mission at BVF is to help up and coming musicians foster creativity in order to make music in a way it’s never been made before.
