The 20th Annual Sphinx Competition takes place in Detroit, MI from February 8-12, 2017. Sphinx invites 18 of the most talented Black and Latino string musicians (violin, viola, cello, and string bass). Applicants up to age 30 are now eligible to apply.
The Sphinx Competition features two exciting concerts of our Junior and Senior division laureates. In addition, the Sphinx Symphony Orchestra welcomes the University of Michigan Men's Glee Club and Maestro Eugene Rogers as they perform a newly composed work titled "Seven Last Words of the Unarmed." A powerful, multi-movement work by Atlanta-based composer Joel Thompson, the song uses the last words of black male victims of police violence as its emotional centerpiece.
