Sphinx Virtuosi will return to Carnegie Hall on Thursday, October 11 at 6:00 p.m. in Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage.

Under the auspices of The Sphinx Organization—a Detroit-based national organization dedicated to transforming lives through the power of diversity in the arts—the self-conducted ensemble makes a timely statement in a program entitled Music Without Borders that highlights music from communities around the globe. The evening also marks the first-ever public appearance by EXIGENCE, Sphinx’s first vocal ensemble highlighting excellence and diversity through choral music. Led by founding member Eugene Rogers, the ensemble creates a platform for soloists and composers of color while inspiring and challenging audiences around the country and world. For this performance, EXIGENCE will be joined by pianist and Sphinx Medal of Excellence recipient Damien Sneed.

This exciting concert, part of the group’s thirteen-city US tour, includes the New York premiere of Dance for a New Day by Grammy Award-winning jazz trumpeter and composer Terence Blanchard, a work co-commissioned by Carnegie Hall as part of its 125 Commissions Project.
