Christylez Bacon is a hip hop music artist, from Washington, DC. He is responsible for introducing his live eclectic blend of classical and jazz and hip-hop arrangements and lyricism to such reputable presenters as Strathmore Hall, and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. (Wikipedia)

“Chris Bacon is one of the most innovative and exciting musicians that Strathmore Music Center has ever had in our emerging Artist in Residence program. He is a consummate performer and a delight for collaborations with artists of different genres. With his background in hip-hop, his version of PachelbeI’s Canon in D is brilliant, as is his beat box accompaniment to old time banjo music. He’s a true musical Renaissance man!”Betty Scott Education Program Coordinator Music Center at Strathmore
