Penn State Behrend will welcome Damien Escobar, a unique hip-hop violinist from New York City, to the stage of Bruno's Cafe in Reed Union Building on Wed., Feb. 19 from noon to 1 p.m. as part of the college's Rhythms of Life Series.
Escobar has an interesting background story, having gotten his start at the tender age of 10 when he would use his violin to serenade passengers on the subways of New York City, exposing thousands to his unique blend of Julliard classically-trained skills and popular urban sounds.
