The Sphinx Virtuosi is a dynamic and inspiring self-conducted chamber orchestra entirely comprised of Black and Latinx artists, evolving and transforming the face of classical music. Their program, featuring works by Nokothula Ngwenyama, Xavier Foley, and Coleridge Taylor Perkinson, highlights innovative music by composers of color past and present. The performance is co-presented by Friends of Chamber Music.

Since 2004, the Sphinx Virtuosi’s concerts have been presented by the leading arts organizations, including annual return visits to Carnegie Hall where it is an established highlight of the fall season. Frequently selling out venues, the ensemble has garnered effusive accolades including from The New York Times, which described the group as "...top-notch...more essential at this moment than ever...a vibrant, assured performance..."; and The Washington Post, who wrote “true to their name, the Sphinx Virtuosi call up the vision of an iconic mythological feline with its immeasurable power, unwavering command, and soulful beauty.”
