Sphinx Virtuosi, “Music of the Americas”

Tickets | Thursday | October 18 | 2012 | 7:30 P.M.

These dynamic artists have embraced Sphinx’s mission to advance the participation of African Americans and Latinos as performers, educators, and listeners.  A chamber orchestra without a conductor, the Sphinx is made up of alumni of the national Sphinx Competition for young Black and Latino string players.  The Detroit-based Sphinx Organization has been promoting ethnic diversity in American orchestral music for 15 years while producing top-rate musicians.

Hailed as “first rate in every way [with] a more beautiful, precise and carefully shaped sound than some fully professional orchestras that come through Carnegie Hall” (The New York Times), the Sphinx Virtuosi chamber orchestra and Catalyst Quartet are top competition Laureates of the Detroit-based Sphinx Organization.
