The Sphinx Virtuosi

Nov 1 , 2013 · KNIGHT THEATER at Levine Center for the Arts

Prices begin at $10

Presented by: Blumenthal Performing Arts

The Sphinx Virtuosi is a conductor-less ensemble of soloists, comprising top alumni of the national Sphinx Competition for young Black and Latino string players. This unique group earned rave reviews from The New York Times during its highly acclaimed Carnegie Hall debut in December 2004. Allan Kozinn described the performance as “first-rate in every way” and the ensemble “produced a more beautiful, precise and carefully shaped sound than some fully professional orchestras that come through Carnegie Hall in the course of the year.”

The ensemble has returned to Carnegie Hall annually since 2006, presenting outstanding programs to sold-out halls of more than 2,800 and earning outstanding reviews from The Times each year. The Sphinx Virtuosi continues to garner critical acclaim during its national tours in many of the country’s leading venues
