Weekend watch: Daniel Bernard Roumain with DJ ScientificTonight
If your school kids have come home this past week humming a different tune, that may be because of Daniel Bernard Roumain. The Haitian-American violinist and composer has been in town all week giving workshops, meeting young students and playing his own music.
Tonight he delivers an electric and eclectic mix of classical music and hip-hop as he plays an amplified six-string violin while DJ Scientific spins and beat-boxes. The tunes start dropping at 7:30 p.m. at the Gaede Stage, Roland Dille Center for the Arts at Minnesota State University Moorhead.
Tickets are $28 for adults, $24 for seniors, MSUM faculty and staff and $12 for students. (218) 477-2271.
