Sphinx Virtuosi For Justice and Peace Friday / October 18, 2019 / 8 p.m.

Williams Center for the Arts

Pre-concert talk at 7 p.m. in Williams Center Room 108: Please join us for an insightful discussion with the artists about Sphinx and the night’s program.

The dynamic Sphinx Virtuosi chamber orchestra brings together the nation’s top Black and Latinx classical soloists, many of whom are alumni of the distinguished Sphinx Competition. With a commitment to cultural equity and artistic excellence, each thoughtfully crafted program illuminates the abundance of music by composers of color and expands the boundaries of the chamber repertoire in imaginative new directions. From Venezuelan Aldemaro Romero to Franz Schubert, Black British composer Philip Herbert to Americans Michael Abels, Jessie Montgomery, and Xavier Foley, For Justice and Peace considers diverse expressions of protest, purpose, and conciliation.

Program: Romero / Fuga con pajarillo // Bartók / Divertimento for Strings // Abels / Global Warming // Herbert / Elegy: In Memoriam, Stephen Lawrence // Foley / For Justice and Peace for Violin, Bass and String Orchestra // Montgomery / Source Code // Schubert / Death and the Maiden, Finale
