“Sphinx Virtuosi is the most prestigious group of musicians to represent the magnificently impactful Sphinx Organization. The 2021 Carnegie Hall performance by these “top-notch string players” received an extended standing ovation for music making described as “splendid,” “vibrant,” and “arresting” (The New York Times). In their anticipated return, the ensemble premieres exciting new works by Valerie Coleman, Jessie Montgomery, and Xavier Foley alongside music by Villa-Lobos, Carlos Simon, and Beethoven. Such a varied program is characteristic of Sphinx Virtuosi’s insightful, ongoing exploration of the classical canon’s evolution. “
