Sphinx Virtuosi with Catalyst QuartetThe Sphinx Virtuosi will perform with the Catalyst Quartet
Described as “first-rate in every way” by The New York Times, the Sphinx Virtuosi is a chamber orchestra led on tour by the critically acclaimed Catalyst Quartet. With a mission to advance diversity in classical music and inspire new and young audiences with dynamic performances of cutting-edge repertoire by a wide range of composers, this concert’s program is a reflection of the artists themselves. The program includes works by Coleridge-Taylor Perkinson, Benjamin Britten and Astor Piazzolla, and features Bach’s “Brandenburg Concerto No. 6” and Vivaldi’s “Concerto for 2 Cellos and String Orchestra.”
Comprised of classical music competition winners from the Sphinx Organization, a national non-profit founded in 1996 by MacArthur Fellow Aaron P. Dworkin, the Virtuosi focuses on overcoming cultural stereotypes of classical music. Dworkin was President Obama’s first appointee to the National Council on the Arts and was named one of Newsweek's “15 People Who Make America Great.”
