“True to their name, the Sphinx Virtuosi call up the vision of an iconic mythological feline with its immeasurable power, unwavering command and soulful beauty.” – THE WASHINGTON POST
The Sphinx Virtuosi are the nation’s most dynamic, exhilarating professional chamber orchestra dedicated to increasing racial and ethnic diversity in classical music. The exquisitely curated program, TRACING VISIONS, challenges and evolves the “classical canon” by illuminating a new pathway for listening, sharing and expression through voices rich with history, conflict and celebration.
