CARNEGIE HALL PRESENTS

Sphinx Virtuosi

Friday, October 15, 2021 7 PM Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
Sphinx Virtuosi by Kevin Kennedy
Hear music that makes a statement. The Sphinx Virtuosi are a Detroit-based chamber orchestra dedicated to increasing racial and ethnic diversity in the arts. This superb ensemble of young African American and Latinx musicians have made powerful statements on social justice issues that impact the world. In recent seasons, they have performed works that explore the plight of enslaved Africans, a memorial to a teenage victim of racial violence, and music by Schubert, Beethoven, Vivaldi, and others. The New York Concert Review said their Carnegie Hall concerts have the “vital energy of a life-and-death mission.”
