SIUE Audience Can Expect the Unexpected from Black Violin Concert2014-03-11 11:20:29 SIUE.edu
Kev Marcus and Wil B will explode on stage playing a fresh fusion of classical music, rock, R&B, pop and hip hop from their stringed instruments on Monday, March 17 at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville.
Black Violin, the American duo from Florida, will give a high energy performance at 7:30 p.m. in the Morris University Center Meridian Ballroom. Marcus plays the violin and B plays the viola. Both attended Dillard High School of Performing Arts and are classically trained musicians.
The men were inspired by the famous jazz violinist, Stuff Smith, and decided to name their group after his last recorded solo album, Black Violin.
Black Violin has enjoyed a variety of notoriety such as winning the Showtime at the Apollo 2005 Legend title, accompanying Alicia Keys at the 2004 Billboard Award and by performing on the same bill with some of the industry’s biggest artists.
The twosome has also played at the U.S. Open, three Super Bowls and at President Barack Obama?s Inauguration Ball.
The beginning for the duo was an interesting one, Marcus recalls on the group?s website, blackviolin.net. Marcus? mother made him take up an instrument when he was in the fifth grade.
?I went to class and got assigned a violin,? he said. ?I wanted to play something cool and wasn?t happy about it. But it ended up working out.?
B began playing the viola in the eighth grade. The two met each other in a high school orchestra class.
?Our teacher James Miles molded us. He told us that if we worked on it, we would make something special,? Marcus said. ?We were playing Bach, Beethoven and Mozart and listening to Biggie Smalls, Mary J. Blige and the Fugees. It was an interesting melting pot. We had no idea what was going to come of it.?
Along the way, the two strived for mastery and ?kept pushing the envelope.?
?We?re excited about bringing in Black Violin,? said Grant Andree, director of Arts & Issues. ?We think this is a group the students will really enjoy. It should be a very entertaining, fun show.?
While the show will certainly be fun, Marcus said Black Violin?s purpose for performing is more important than that.
?The point is to get people to think outside of the box. It isn?t about the violins,? Marcus said. ?The violin has been around for hundreds of years, yet we are doing different things with it. So no matter what you are studying to be, make sure you?re taking it to the next level. So you can be your own ?Virtuoso.? ?
The concert is sponsored by The Bank of Edwardsville and is partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency.
For tickets and information, visit the SIUE Dunham Hall Arts & Issues Box Office, the SIUE Morris University Center Information Booth, artsandissues.com or call (618) 650-5774.
The Arts & Issues series brings artistic excellence to the SIUE campus through an eclectic blend of speakers and performers. For more than 29 years, SIUE?s Arts & Issues series has showcased some of the world’s finest artists. Each season, thought-provoking speakers inspire people of all ages and backgrounds. Thanks to the underwriting of SIUE, corporations, foundations and individual donors, tickets are often discounted as much as 75 percent.
Arts & Issues is tied to the academic mission of the University and offers unique opportunities for students, faculty, staff, and the community, to engage with performers and speakers through master classes and special sessions.

SIUE Becomes Institute of International Education Partner2014-03-11 10:51:07 SIUE.edu
Southern Illinois University Edwardsville has pledged to double the number of students studying abroad over the next five years as a lead partner in the Institute of International Education?s Generation Study Abroad initiative, announced earlier this month.
Committing to specific, measurable actions to achieve this ambitious goal, SIUE joins a host of other well-renowned higher education institutions ? 150 in all ? including Purdue University, Rutgers University and the College of William & Mary. Higher education associations, study abroad provider organizations, several foreign institutions or government agencies and the U.S. Dept. of State?s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs are also program partners.
The result of this concerted effort, according to Narbeth Emmanuel, vice chancellor for Student Affairs, is that thousands more American students nationwide will graduate with the international experience necessary for success in a globalized world.
?In our effort to foster and support the opportunities for SIUE students to have global experiences, we are committed to developing and establishing multiple ways for students to engage in meaningful international opportunities,? Emmanuel said. ?To that extent, we believe that all our students should have the opportunity to travel abroad and discover the world around them.?
IIE has committed $2 million toward the initiative, according to IIE President Allan Goodman. The New York-based organization has also established a study abroad fund to provide scholarships to college and high school students and grants to partnering institutions.
The IIE?s overall goal is to see 600,000 students per year studying abroad by the close of 2019. A total of 295,000 American college students studied abroad in 2011-12 for-credit and non-credit programs, according to IIE and the federal government. This represents approximately 10 percent of the 2.6 million students who graduated that year with associates or baccalaureate degrees.
?In today?s increasingly global workplace, that number is far too low,? said Goodman. ?Generation Study Abroad seeks to address this shortfall by bringing employers, governments, associations and others together to build on current best practices and find new ways to extend study abroad opportunities to hundreds of thousands of college students who are not currently studying abroad.
?International experience is now one of the most important components of a 21st Century resume. Our goal is to change the paradigm so that study abroad is considered an essential part of a college education.?
The organization continues to seek commitments from the following: 500 institutions pledging to significantly expand their study abroad programs; 10 institutions who require a study abroad experience in order to graduate; 10,000 alumni and students who join the initiative and promote study abroad; and 1,000 high school teachers who pledge to make their students aware of study abroad opportunities. IIE is also seeking donors and sponsors willing to contribute support for the study abroad scholarships.
Uniquely meaningful, yet affordable international travel experiences are what SIUE pledges to continue developing for its student body, according to Emmanuel.
?We will seek the most affordable, the most efficient and the most engaging travel experiences for our students,? Emmanuel said. ?We believe that our partnership with the International Institute for Education?s Generation Study Abroad initiative will enable us to fulfill our study abroad goals.?
Leading up to IIE?s centennial celebration in 2019, Generation Study Abroad will engage educators at all levels and stakeholders in the public and private sectors to drive meaningful, innovative action to increase the number of U.S. students who have the opportunity to gain international experience. Internships, service learning and non-credit educational experiences are also key components of the initiative in addition to academic programs.
?Globalization has changed the way the world works,? Goodman said. ?Employers are increasingly looking for workers who have international skills and expertise. Studying abroad must be viewed as an essential component of a college degree and critical to preparing future leaders.?Read Full Story ...
