Sphinx Virtuosi: Tracing Visions at New World Symphony

Tuesday, March 22, 2022 at 7:30pm

Tracing Visions sets out to challenge and evolve our “classical “canon by illuminating a new pathway for listening, sharing, and artistic expression. As we trace visions of the past, we summon Ginastera’s epic work for strings. We revel in the sounds of gospel and Cuban dance music. We seek to tell a more complete story of America through the voice of Xavier Foley and his vision of the Black National Anthem. Jessie Montgomery’s Banner unleashes the vibrancy of the many voices comprising the fabric of our country. Andrea Casarrubios honors the heroes of today who fought to save lives during the pandemic. These are the sounds of our rich history, our conflict, and our celebration. These are the visions of America.


Since its founding in 2004, Sphinx Virtuosi has defined itself as the most diverse professional chamber orchestra in the country. The dynamism in this ensemble’s approach to music making offers an experience of unmatched vibrancy for seasoned and new audiences alike. Comprised of 18 of the nation’s top Black and Latinx classical soloists, these artists tour annually as cultural ambassadors to communities far and wide.
