Led by the acclaimed Catalyst Quartet, the 18-member Sphinx Virtuosi string orchestra is comprised of alumni from the renowned Sphinx Competition. The ensemble often receives accolades for its work. After a performance at Carnegie Hall, The New York Times reported that they “produced a more beautiful, precise and carefully shaped sound than some fully-professional orchestras.”

The ensemble works to advance diversity in classical music while engaging young and new audiences through performances of varied repertoire. Its 2014 program, AMERICANA, may include works by distinguished American composers Aaron Copland, Jessie Montgomery, Coleridge-Taylor Perkinson, Duke Ellington, John Corigliano and
Philip Glass.
