Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. for Black Violin: Impossible tour's show on March 20 at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre, 2800 Cobb Galleria Parkway in the Cumberland area.

Black Violin is led by classically trained string players Wil B. and Kev Marcus. Joining them onstage are DJ SPS and drummer Nat Stokes. The band uses their unique blend of classical and hip-hop music to overcome stereotypes while encouraging people of all ages, races and economic backgrounds to join together to break down cultural barriers.

Black Violin, alongside artists such as Yo-Yo Ma and Elton John, recently joined with Turnaround Arts to bring arts education to struggling schools in underserved communities. Turnaround Arts is a program of the John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts founded by President Obama’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities in 2012.

Tickets are $19.50, $31.50, $46.50 and $61.50 plus applicable fees.

I just read where Governor Kemp asked all the state departments to reduce their budgets by 4% and keep his campaign promise of teachers getting a $3000 raise. It is pleasant to read unlike other politicians who promise the world to get elected. He is actually being proactive instead of reactive. The state is doing well and unlike other states with the other political party. He is prudent with our money instead of just continuing to ask for more. If only Cobb BOC could follow his lead.
