In continuation of his support for the community and the arts, Zach Hoffman, CEO/Founder of Exults, presented United Way of Broward County Commission on Substance Abuse’s Broward Youth Coalition (BYC) with tickets to Black Violin’s Fort Lauderdale show on February 5th at Parker Playhouse.
The tickets were distributed to 50 students and chaperones from BYC, a program focused on developing youth advocates in substance abuse prevention and mental health promotion. BYC members are trained to lead youth coalitions and participate in drug-education workshops at their respective chapters at schools throughout the county.
The group of students enjoyed the show headlined by Dillard School for the Performing Arts alumni and violinists Kev Marcus and Wil B, who have broken musical barriers by delivering a fusion of classical, jazz, hip-hop, blues and R&B through their compositions. The Florida natives met while attending Dillard High School, where they were able to further develop their already growing talents through the school’s exceptional music program. Since its inception, Black Violin has overcome musical stereotypes and continues to inspire today’s youth through their music and hard-earned success.
