16th Annual Sphinx Competition Concert
Detroit Public TV captured the 16th Annual Sphinx Competition Concert, at Orchestra Hall in Detroit on Feb. 17, 2013. The Sphinx Competition showcases young black and Hispanic classical string players.
The outstanding Sphinx Orchestra is composed of amateur and professional musicians from all over the United States, many of whom were launched into their careers by becoming a part of the Sphinx experience. They are under the direction of Maestro Anthony Elliott.
This program was produced with DPTV’s high-definition production truck and we're proud to make it widely available here at dptv.org, on Channel 56, and on WRCJ 90.9 FM. Production is made possible with support from Fifth Third Bank and the DTE Energy Foundation.
