Watson Chamber Music Hall, 1533 S. Main Street, Winston-Salem, NC 27127-2738


Sphinx Virtuosi return with a program that sets out to challenge and evolve the classical canon by illuminating a new pathway for listening, sharing and expression. A bit of a musical archeology project, the program offers elements of uncovered literature by Samuel Coleridge Taylor and Florence Price; Ginastera's epic work for strings; and a visit to Cuba for a glimpse into the sounds from afar that have influenced much of what we listen to today. The program seeks 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 our country and its very fabric.
