The Peter D. and Julie F. Cummings Cube
1 hour and 30 minutes

Returning from his sold-out debut, BLKBOK returns for a special evening of music, in celebration of the 2023 DSO's Classical Roots concert, with a high-energy performance and live production like none you have ever seen. BLKBOK’s authentic style on the keys attract the ear with compositions situated in a bed of classical notes accentuated with pop forms, jazzy riffs, and hip-hop boldness–sounds that reference his love for rhythms and musicality ranging from Ice Cube and Tina Turner to Chopin and, of course, Bach.

Cabaret seat - $60

BLKBOK: From Detroit to the Stars

When people see me, they expect me to start rapping, and they’re not 100% wrong…I am a rapper, except I spit lyrics and tell my stories through my hands, with these notes. ”
