2017 Program: Concerti per Venti

In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Sphinx Organization, this exciting program offers a collection of concerti through the ages, performed by the 18-piece self-conducted Sphinx Virtuosi. The program has something for every listener, showcasing tremendous variety in languages and styles, from baroque to contemporary. The tour will include the newly commissioned Guardian of the Horizon: Concerto Grosso for Violin, Cello, and Strings, by award-winning composer Jimmy Lopez, made possible in part with the support of Linda and Stuart Nelson. The Concerti per Venti program will also feature Delights and Dances by Michael Abels, a three-movement work for string quartet and string orchestra (commissioned by Sphinx in 2012), Concerto Grosso by Vaughan Williams and Beethoven’s timeless Grosse Fugue.

The Sphinx Virtuosi is a self-conducted chamber orchestra, comprised of 18 of the nation’s top Black and Latino musicians. Learn more about this unique ensemble here.
