Sphinx Organization: Two weeks until 14-city Sphinx Virtuosi National Tour

In two weeks, one of the nation's most dynamic chamber ensembles will bring 'For Justice and Peace' across the country

Launching on September 29 at New World Center in Miami, the 2019/20 Sphinx Virtuosi National Tour is the first to take place in two parts - Fall 2019 and Winter 2020 - allowing more audiences than ever to experience the diverse programming and electrifying artistry of the self-conducted orchestra.

The tour program, For Justice and Peace, immerses audiences in these themes as they appear in music throughout place and time. Repertoire includes a world premiere by Sphinx Competition Laureate Xavier Foley and works by Béla Bartok and Franz Schubert. Listeners will leave inspired to contemplate their own role, as well as that of the arts, in propelling peace and positivity.
