4 Senior Finalists have just minutes ago been announced at the 2019 22nd Annual Sphinx Competition – in Detroit, United States.
Open to American Black and Latino high school and college students, the annual competition is aimed at the encouragement, development and recognition of classical music talent in the Black and Latino communities.
2019 Senior Division Finalists are:
  • 24-year-old cellist Laura Andrade
  • 19-year-old cellist Sterling Elliott
  • 26-year-old violist Caleb Georges
  • 21-year-old violinist Adé Williams

“Whilst our jurors have historically progressed 3 candidates to the senior final round, due to the outstanding level of today’s semi-final performances, the jury have  taken the uncharacteristic decision to progress 4 young artists this year to compete on Saturday for the $50,000 Robert Frederick Smith prize,” Sphinx Organization President and Artistic Director Afa Dworkin has told The Violin Channel.
