Latin Voyages: Viajes Latinos takes the listener on a journey, a quest from the tantalizing Argentine tango to the nocturnal imagery of Mexico, along with a tribute to the great Piazzolla. We invite you to explore the exciting palette of the string medium through the prism of renowned composers of Latin heritage as well as those heard more seldom. Celebrate the intricate mosaic of sounds and colors that pay homage to our vastly diverse heritage through music!

The Sphinx Virtuosi, led by the Catalyst Quartet, is one of the nation’s most dynamic professional chamber orchestras. Comprised of 18 of the nation’s top Black and Latino classical soloists, these alumni of the internationally renowned Sphinx Competition come together each fall as cultural ambassadors to reach new audiences. This unique ensemble earned rave reviews from The New York Times during its highly acclaimed debut at Carnegie Hall in December 2004. Allan Kozinn described their performance as “first-rate in every way” and “the ensemble produced a more beautiful, precise and carefully shaped sound than some fully professional orchestras that come through Carnegie Hall in the course of the year.”
