The famous first family of violin is coming to Connecticut to perform at the Greenwich Performing Arts Center at the end of April.
Alexander Markov says he was the product of a classical music home during the era of the guitar gods. Markov will be joining his famous parents, Albert and Marina Markov, to perform on April 24.
"We do a beautiful program," says Markov. "It's like a musical journey, we start with baroque. Then I do my Paganini specialty."

Markov also brought his musical revolution to area schools this week. He says students always perk up when he brings out the distortion pedals.
"It makes them feel that it's OK, it's like I make it OK to like classical," says Markov. "I want to make classical, to the kids, be cool."
The show at the Greenwich Performing Arts Center is at 3 p.m. Some of the proceeds will go to those impacted by the war in Ukraine.
