Sphinx Virtuosi

May 26  Wednesday at 7:30 pm

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.

ABOUT SPHINX VIRTUOSI

The Sphinx Organization is the social justice organization dedicated to transforming lives through the power of diversity in the arts. Sphinx’s four program areas – Education & Access, Artist Development, Performing Artists, and Arts Leadership – form a pipeline that develops and supports diversity and inclusion in classical music at every level: music education, artists performing on stage, the repertoire and programing being performed, the communities represented in audiences, and the artistic and administrative leadership within the field.

What are people saying?

Electrically charged performances of as high a caliber as any other professional group, but with the vital energy of a life-and-death mission."

New York Concert Review

I am just in awe of what Sphinx has accomplished, but even more excited about its future."
