Read program Notes for Sphinx Virtuosi voiced by George Lopez

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.
