Dec 04, 2014
Detroit, MI

Sphinx Organization (Detroit, MI) has announced their 2015 SphinxCon (January 30 - February 1, Detroit, MI) which will bring together leaders discussing solutions to the challenges surrounding diversity in the performing arts. The National Guild is proud to be a founding partner of SphinxCon.

This year Sphinx is implementing an interactive format and structure for the convening to engage presenters, stakeholders, and attendees in the discussion of diversity and the performing arts. They are inviting session presenters to come and speak for 10min on their work, best practices, and challenges in diversity and the performing arts. They then will have corresponding session respondents join them on stage for a facilitated discussion amongst themselves and with the audience. The discussion among leaders will last 15min and then the audience engagement portion will be 20min.
We encourage our members to get in on this important conversation. The early bird registration deadline is December 12, 2014. Learn More
About Sphinx Overture
The Sphinx Overture program offers free weekly year-long classes in introductory violin performance for elementary school students in Detroit and Flint, MI.  The program is designed to address the needs of students in pursuit of music studies at beginning levels who have not had access to steady, balanced musical training.  Sphinx Overture also features a guest artist/ensemble performance, including Catalyst Quartet, Sphinx's premiere ensemble.
