On March 29, 2017, Sphinx will honor three outstanding artists of color whose accomplishments distinguish them among musicians in the field: Kelly Hall-Tompkins, Ailyn Perez, and Eugene Rogers.

The awards are bestowed at the official Sphinx Medals of Excellence luncheon and honorees are celebrated at a black-tie private dinner in Washington, D.C.

“The work of these tremendous artists is in perfect resonance with Sphinx’s mission.  We are truly honored to celebrate these leaders at a time when social justice and the arts have such a powerful connection!” said Sphinx President and Artistic Director, Afa S. Dworkin.
