‚ÄúThe Sphinx Virtuosi are, quite simply, marvelous.‚ÄĚ
(The New Yorker)

Founded in 1997 in¬†Detroit, and with nation¬≠wide reach, the Sphinx Virtuosi is¬†a dynamic and inspiring profession¬≠al self-conducted chamber orchestra and serves as the flagship performing entity of the Sphinx Organi¬≠za¬≠tion‚ÄĒ‚Äčthe leading social justice non-profit dedicated to transform¬≠ing lives through the power of diversity in the¬†arts. Comprised primarily of Black and Latinx artists, a critical aim of the Sphinx Virtuosi is to¬†evolve and transform the¬†face of classical music through artistic excellence, pioneer¬≠ing pro¬≠gramming, and impassioned community engage¬≠ment. Its¬†members serve as cultural and diversity ambassadors for audiences and communities around the United States during national tours, and perform annually at Carnegie Hall where The¬†New York Times has praised the group¬†as ‚Äú‚Ķ‚Äćtop‚ÄĎnotch‚Ķ‚Äčmore essential at this moment than¬†ever‚Äć‚Ķ‚Äča¬†vibrant, assured performance.‚ÄĚ

 


 

THE SPHINX VIRTUOSI'S PROGRAM is a cutting-edge cele­bra­tion of classical music's evolving landscape, spot­lighting vibrant new works by its own virtuosic members and re­in­vigorat­ing the genre with fresh, diverse per­spectives. This pro­gram is not just a concert; it's a dy­nam­ic cultural conversa­tion pre­sent­ed through the univers­al language of music.
