Comprised of 18 accomplished Black and Latinx artists, a critical aim of the Sphinx Virtuosi is to evolve and transform the face of classical music through artistic excellence, pioneering programming and impassioned community engagement. Its members serve as cultural and diversity ambassadors for audiences and communities around the United States during national tours. Inspired by the poetry of Langston Hughes and Julia Alvarez, this evening’s program will showcase the beauty and tradition of excellence inherent in classical music created and performed by Black and Latinx composers for many generations. Together, the Sphinx Virtuosi seek to uplift spirits through sharing the sounds that inspire us and transcend the boundaries of time, history and struggle.
