This Wednesday, Florida-based musical group Black Violin will bring their 2017 Unity Tour to Peoria for a day of celebration and community.
A Unity Walk is scheduled for 9:30 am on Wednesday morning, starting at Peoria City Hall and finishing at Centennial Plaza. Following the peaceful walk, there will be guest speakers and a performance from Black Violin, a duo that hopes to use their instrumental music to set differences aside and inspire unity. Their morning performance will be free for the entire community.
Later that evening, from 6 to 8 pm, Black Violin will once again take the stage in Centennial Plaza, showcasing their blend of classical, hip-hop, rock, R&B, and bluegrass music. The hip-hop/classical crossover duo released their major-label debut “Stereotypes” at the end of 2015, and there music has been gaining recognition since then.
The free concert will be lawn seating, so guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets. Parking is free and there will be food trucks from Cheese, Love and Happiness as well as Burgers Amore.
Don’t miss out on this awesome free concert and see firsthand how Black Violin uses music to break down barriers and stereotypes that form due to racial, religious and economic differences.
