Hip-hop violinist Lindsey Stirling quickly made a name for herself after becoming a quarter-finalist on “America’s Got Talent” in 2010. Although she didn’t win, her colorful and spirited mix of classical, hip-hop, rock and modern dance made her a YouTube sensation, which led to her carving out a unique niche within the modern classical genre. Boosted by the electronic and dub-step-infused single, “Crystallize,” which gained 11 million views in less than two months, Stirling’s self-titled debut album reached No. 81 on the Billboard 200 while topping its dance-electronic albums and classical albums charts in the United States. Lindsey Stirling performs at the National on Friday, May 10, at 8 p.m. $20-$25. thenationalva.com.
