Attendees of the Dreamer Dream event will join Black Violin and special guests for an Inaugural Fundraiser in support of Black Violin Foundation Inc, Sunday Oct 27, 2019, 3pm-5:30pm at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, in the Mary N. Porter Riverview Ballroom- featuring live performances and special guests!

All of the proceeds collected from this event will benefit the Black Violin Foundation Inc. to support its flagship program the “Musical Innovation Grant” for continuing education. The Black Violin Foundation’s inaugural program will provide scholarships of up to $1,000 to youth ages 13 – 20 years’ old who would like to continue their musical education through a program of their liking that fosters musical creativity and innovation. Programs can range from private lessons, to summer music camps, to college courses.  Scholarships will be awarded bi-annually to up to 20 applicants per scholarship cycle.

The Black Violin Foundation Inc. (BVF) is a nonprofit 501 c3 organization dedicated to empowering youth by working with them in their communities to provide access to quality music programs that encourage creativity. BVF’s 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.

BVF is co-directed by Anne Sylvester wife of Kev Marcus and Corryn Freeman wife of Wil Baptiste.

The guests of the “Dreamers Dream” Fundraiser will enjoy hors d’oeuvres and a limited bar, guests will also have the opportunity to join Black Violin for a pre-release listening party of their highly anticipated album “Take the Stairs”. Attendees will hear directly from Black Violin about the album development and concept, and have the ability to ask questions about the album and about the Black Violin Foundation Inc.
