Sphinx Performance Academy Alum Angélica Durrell has gone on to not only have a successful music career, but start her own organization, INTAKE

As the dates of our Sphinx Performance Academy draw nearer, Sphinx is continuing to endeavor to raise funds to support this wonderful program.
Success stories of SPA alumni range from scholarships at top music schools to major orchestra positions and beyond, and your support has made these stories possible.

We wanted to share a spotlight on one SPA alum who has gone on to not only have a successful music career, but start her own organization.   
Violinist, former SPA student and recent MPower Artist Grant recipient Angélica Durrell graduated on full scholarship from the University of Connecticut and has gone on to perform at the Crowden School of Music with Grammy award-winning composer Gabriela Lena Frank, the National Symphony of Ecuador, and as guest concertmaster with the Ecuadorian National Conservatory Symphony Orchestra. She has worked as the Artistic Assistant to the UConn Collegium Musicum Ensemble, Assistant Dean of the Sphinx Performance Academy, Chamber Music Institute for Young Musicians, Hartford Symphony Orchestra, and the Hall Arts Academy.

Angie is also the Founder and Artistic Director of the INTAKE Organization
(Instrumentally Native Taking on the Classics). INTAKE is a non-profit organization that promotes music education through multiculturalism and native instruments.
