Classical and Hip-Hop aren’t musical genres that typically get mentioned in the same sentence, but Black Violin isn’t your typical band. The quartet, led by Wil B. (viola) and Kev Marcus (violin), melds the two styles in surprisingly seamless fashion. On Saturday, November 16, Black Violin brings its Impossible Tour to The Lyric Theatre. The show is a fundraiser presented by the Birmingham Chapter of The Links, Inc. Recently, the band released its latest album, Take The Stairs, featuring the single “Showoff.” Tickets to the 7 p.m. show can be purchased at
