Black Violin

Black Violin

Florida duo Wilner Baptiste (viola) and Kevin Sylvester (violin), aka Wil B and Kev Marcus of Black Violin, are classically trained musicians with a love of hip-hop and have created an unlikely hybrid of percussive cadence and liquid melodies. After making a splash accompanying Alicia Keys at the 2004 Billboard Music Awards they went on to open shows for the Wu-Tang Clan, produce and write with Tom Petty and Kanye West, and play the Kids Inaugural Concert for president Barack Obama in 2013. They’re still touring in support of their 2015 album Stereotypes, with a date on Thursday at the California Center for the Arts, Escondido.

Dave Freeman Badminton Open

The junior tournament is on Friday, and finals start on Sunday. Dave Freeman was a world-class badminton player and worked as a neurosurgeon in San Diego after retiring from badminton, a career trajectory few can claim. There’s a $12,000 cash prize for the top winner. Spectators are welcome, free admission. Also on Saturday and Sunday.
