BLKBOK: Neo-Classical Piano Prodigy

BLKBOK, the neo-classical piano prodigy from Detroit, has taken the music world by storm with his uniquely gifted talent. Using his dexterous arrangements and melodic scores, BLKBOK has been able to audibly illustrate the experiences of his own and his community’s pivotal moments in American history.

BLKBOK’s music has a soulful and emotional quality that resonates deeply with his listeners. His ability to evoke such powerful emotions through his music is a testament to his talent and dedication to his craft. In his compositions, BLKBOK draws on a range of influences, from classical music to modern hip-hop, to create a sound that is truly his own.

Student Matinee Opportunities are available for BLKBOK. Please reach out to Director of Education, Julianne Nickerson, jnickerson@sprucepeakarts.org.

About BLKBOK

Born and raised in Detroit’s inner-city, BLKBOK (born Charles Wilson III), grew up in a music-filled house and by the time he was 8, BLKBOK was an acclaimed piano prodigy, winning statewide accolades and college-level competitions. When it came to music, most of the kids he grew up with pursued hip-hop, adopting rap names. However, it’s no coincidence that Charles chose the name BLKBOK, which echoes that of one of the greatest pianists and composers of all time. The tag is also an apt reflection of the elements that have contributed to the artist’s identity and symbolizes his colorful journey from pop and hip-hop culture to his critically acclaimed, neo-classical debut album Black Book, and various Mixtape projects and collaborations.

BLKBOK’s live, high-energy performance is culturally reflective and seeks to entertain with a live piano based performance like none you have ever seen before. BLKBOK’s vision is to illuminate awareness for all, encouraging dialogue and counterpoint in the way we perceive ourselves and the world we live in together.
