Art of the Stage: Sphinx Virtuosi

February 21 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$10 – $20

The Detroit-based chamber orchestra Sphinx Virtuosi at the Museum of Fine Arts St. Petersburg, in the Marly Auditorium. For Justice and Peace is part of the MFA’s ongoing Art of the Stage: Picasso to Hockney exhibit.


Comprised of 18 of the nation’s top black and Latinx classical soloists, the Virtuosi are alumni of the Sphinx Competition, and its members work together as cultural ambassadors reaching new audiences. “True to their name,” wrote a Washington Post reviewer, “the Sphinx Virtuosi call up the vision of an iconic mythological feline with its immeasurable power, unwavering command and soulful beauty.”


The ensemble is known for its programs of works by contemporary composers. The MFA program will include John Williams’ Three Themes; Frank Schubert’s Death and the Maiden, a work by Argentinian composer Astor Piazzolla; and a piece from black British composer, Philip Herbert, dedicated to 18-year-old Stephen Lawrence whose life was lost to violence.
