Black Violin is composed of classically trained violist and violinist Wil Baptiste and Kev Marcus, who combine their classical training and hip-hop influences to create a distinctive multi-genre sound that is often described as “classical boom.”
Black Violin’s Impossible Tour will spread the message that anything is possible and there are no limits to what one can achieve, regardless of circumstance. The focus is positivity and encouragement. As Wil Baptiste puts it, “When you come to a Black Violin concert, there are so many people in the audience experiencing something together. To me, that’s what our show does, it brings people together. Not only that, you’re being inspired, you’re being uplifted, you’re able to see something you probably have never seen before.”
MPAC is dedicated to providing exceptional arts education opportunities to children and adults of all ages and abilities. We are proud to offer The Miracle Project classes as part of our Performing Arts School!
The Miracle Project New Jersey is an evidence-based, groundbreaking program which helps children and young adults with autism and other special needs build communication and social skills, community, and greater self-esteem though music, acting, dance, acting and storytelling.
This fully inclusive music, movement and creative drama program was created by Elaine Hall in Los Angeles in 2004 and featured in the Emmy award-winning documentary AUTISM: The Musical. We launched The Miracle Project at MPAC in 2017—and we are the only provider in the state of New Jersey!
The Miracle Project is part of our Performing Arts School summer class offerings, where students will have a great time socializing, learning new skills and working toward a mini musical performance. Visit our website to browse all of our summer classes and register!
