KOKOMO, Ind. – The only thing Svet needs to put on the performance of a lifetime is his trusty violin.
Mr. Hip Hop Violin will perform on campus on Thursday, February 7, at 7 p.m. in Kresge Auditorium. The event is free and open to the campus and community.
"I've never seen such a high energy performance from one person," said Lorie Blunck, Student Union Board director. "His violin work is amazing, and you will feel like you're at a hip-hop concert."
Svet made his mark on the music world when he started blending current hits with classical, hip-hop, and reggae ton music, all with his violin. In addition, Svet is a singer and music producer, which have allowed him to move effortlessly through the music industry. His natural violin talents have led him to amazing opportunities, and he's always looking to take his music to the next level.
"I am really excited for the campus and community to watch Svet perform," Blunck said. "He will have you on your feet dancing and singing within minutes."
Svet discovered his natural violin talents at the ripe age of three. Through much dedication and determination, he later received a scholarship to the Eastman School of Music. By the age of 25, Svet has been featured on BET, MTV, and on ABC's America's Got Talent. He's performed with Trick Daddy, Trina, and Tpain, and was featured on BET's 106 & Park 2009 to perform for Kanye West and Jamie Foxx. In May 2011, Svet was nominated for "Talent of the Week" by worldstarhiphop.com, one of the largest and most influential hip-hop websites in the world.
