Friday Night Live! Transitive Vision

Curated by Detroit Native and Grammy Nominated Violinist Jannina Norpoth, a collective of distinguished Sphinx Alumni fuse past, present and future through a dynamic collection of Contemporary works by Black Composers ranging from Sphinx Alum Jessie Montgomery to Rhiannon Giddens of the Carolina Chocolate Drops.

Sharing Sphinx Connect's 2020 Conference's theme "Vision" this program contemplates how we perceive the world around us, how we see one another, and how music can both illuminate Black History and envision our future.
