Inspired by the poetry of Langston Hughes and Julia Alvarez, the 18-member Sphinx Virtuosi showcase the beauty and tradition of excellence inherent in classical music created and performed by Black and Latinx composers for many generations. The ensemble seeks to uplift spirits by sharing the sounds that inspire people and transcend the boundaries of time, history and struggle. These alumni of Detroit’s Sphinx Competition, an annual contest focused on increasing representation of Black and Latinx string players in classical music, are the flagship performance entity serving as cultural and diversity ambassadors throughout the country. Click HERE for artist's website. LU Students attend for FREE, click for more info.
