One of the nation's most dynamic young classical ensembles, the Sphinx Virtuosi is a conductor-less ensemble composed of alumni from the Sphinx Competition for young Black and Latino string players. Hailed by The New York Times as “first-rate in every way,” the Sphinx Virtuosi offers a diverse program of well-known repertoire and works by African-American and Latino composers. This lively concert spans two centuries, with works from Bach and Vivaldi, to Arvo Paart, Philip Glass, and Alberto Ginastera.
