SphinxConnect, the largest Diversity, Equity and Inclusion convening in the performing arts sector, to present 20 online sessions designed to inspire action and spark collaboration

DETROIT, MICHIGAN (JANUARY 14, 2022) — Two of the Sphinx Organization’s flagship annual events —the 25th annual Sphinx Competition for Black and Latinx musicians and the organization’s annual convening, SphinxConnect—will take place virtually Thursday, January 20 through Saturday, January 29. The events are the first in a year-long celebration of Sphinx’s 25th anniversary, marking a quarter of a century of transforming lives through the power of diversity in the arts.

Originally slated to be held in Detroit with in-person participation, both will now be virtual-only owing to uncertainty over the COVID-19 variant developments.

Sphinx President & Artistic Director Afa S. Dworkin said:

“We are tremendously excited to offer meaningful content, co-curated with the vibrant members of the greater Sphinx community. As the epicenter for artists and leaders in diversity, SphinxConnect is like a family reunion, a coming together of minds and individuals who are looking to forge alliances for our collective good. We are also excited to showcase the most promising young artists competing for $100,000 in prizes and scholarships. The Sphinx Competition is celebrating its 25th edition this year and it remains an integral part of our systemic work in centering excellence and diversity in classical music."
