Kofi Boakye shares on his passion for the piano. Boakye is a 16 year old pianist born in Akron, Ohio. Kofi has gathered musical experience from myriad venues across the United States, having performed in the Gospel Music Workshop of America as the organist for the National Children’s and National Men’s Choirs, as well as performing for the Ohio-Pennsylvania District Mega Assembly. Locally, Kofi regularly serves as musical director for church choirs, praise teams, and is often recruited to oversee the music production for stage plays. Although many of his experiences stem from within the U.S., Kofi has had the opportunity to refine his talents on the world stage, touring Germany and Prague with the Miller South Show Choir.
While music remains at the core of who Kofi is, he’s far from one dimensional.
In 2014, President Barack Obama and The White House awarded Kofi with the “President’s Education Award for Outstanding Academic Excellence” and he earned it while balancing school and his blossoming music career.
