LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Some Lufkin ISD middle school students had a very good reason to get outside of the classroom this afternoon. They were treated to a one-of-a-kind performance by a pair of violinists.

"Black Violins" is a duo blending classical music with hip-hop. Monday’s performance at the Angelina Arts Alliance was meant to help students understand the importance of breaking free from confines of stereotypes.  

"We could say go out and play or go out and be a musician, and that's great too. We got a full scholarship to college, that's great. But we'd much rather think bigger and broader and give them the message of being forward thinkers. Of looking at something and seeing that there are no boundaries to it," said Kev Marcus and Will Baptiste. 

There's still time to catch "Black Violins" in concert. A performance is scheduled tomorrow at 7 p.m. at the Temple Theater in Lufkin. Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for children.
