Event description

Description

Sphinx Virtuosi


ABOUT THIS CONCERT
Described by The New York Times as “first-rate in every way...producing a more beautiful, precise and carefully shaped sound than some fully professional orchestras” Sphinx Virtuosi has caused a major positive shift in the American classical music landscape since its founding in 2004. This unique self-conducted ensemble is comprised of the nation’s top Black and Latinx classical soloists. They make their debut at the Library of Congress in a program rich with gems by composers of color, including new and important voices such as Jessie Montgomery and Xavier Foley. This concert offers something for both seasoned listeners and newcomers.
