Looking Ahead: The Sphinx Virtuosi Takes the Stage This Week
What could be more interesting than an ensemble of soloists without a conductor? The Sphinx Virtuosi comprises top alumni of the national Sphinx Competition for young black and Latino string players. This unique group earned rave reviews from The New York Times during its highly acclaimed Carnegie Hall debut in December 2004, and now, this week, the group is headed right here to Charlotte.
The Sphinx Virtuosi plays Knight Theater at Levine Center for the Arts on Friday, Nov. 1, at 7:30 p.m.
Check out the talented group in this video below.
Allan Kozinn, music critic for The New York Times, described the performance as “first-rate in every way” and said the ensemble “produced a more beautiful, precise and carefully shaped sound than some fully professional orchestras that come through Carnegie Hall in the course of the year.” The ensemble has returned to Carnegie Hall annually since 2006, presenting outstanding programs to soldout halls of more than 2,800 and earning outstanding reviews from The Times each year. The Sphinx Virtuosi continues to garner critical acclaim during its national tours in many of the country’s leading venues.
