Sphinx Virtuosi, the nation's most dynamic, exhilarating professional chamber orchestra is dedicated to increasing racial and ethnic diversity in classical music. Comprised of 18 of the nation's top Black and Latinx classical soloists who perform without a conductor, the musicians are primarily alumni of the internationally renowned Sphinx Competition. This unique ensemble had its highly acclaimed debut at Carnegie Hall in 2004 and has returned annually since 2006. Inspired by the Sphinx Organization’s overarching mission, the musicians work as cultural ambassadors to advance diversity in classical music, while engaging young and new audiences through performances of kaleidoscopically varied repertoire. Masterpieces by Bach, Tchaikovsky, Vivaldi and Mozart will be performed alongside seldom-presented works by composers of color.
