EJ THOMAS HALL
Some of this country's very best Black and Latinx solo musicians, drawn from top orchestras and conservatories, take the EJ stage as Sphinx Virtuosi.
Five of the Virtuosi — representing each of the chamber orchestra’s sections — are with us for this special evening: violinists Rubén Rengel and Jannina Norpoth, violist Dana Kelley, cellist Thomas Mesa, and bassist Christopher Johnson.
They'll share Land of the Free, a creative and timely program featuring works by Barber, Dvořák, Xavier Foley, and more.
