Event website

Big Lux is a hip-hop artist, violinist, lyricist, composer, educator, and civil rights activist. His unique sound is a blend of the styles and cultures he’s absorbed throughout his life, including classical training in the Suzuki method, improvisational jazz, street music in South Korea, hi-tempo Latin influences from Miami, and his experience as a civil rights activist.

With recent appearances on The Kelly Clarkson Show, The Special Report with Areva Martin, The Boston Globe, and other major media, Big Lux is making his music and voice heard across the country.

This performance is part of a collaboration between Mayo Street Arts and the East End Community School. This MSA-EECS Partnership is a portion of a year-round approach toward engagement with our neighbors in East Bayside. A committee of elementary students and faculty helps to select artists and tailor workshops to support the classroom curriculum.
