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. Their dynamic program includes works by composers Xavier Foley, Florence Price, Jessie Montgomery and more.
Directly following the performance, join the musicians for a discussion moderated by Ireri E. Chávez-Bárcenas, Assistant Professor of Music at Bowdoin College
