THE SPHINX VIRTUOSI – 7th ANNUAL TOUR COMES TO ROCKPORT OCTOBER 26
The Sphinx Virtuosi, led by the Catalyst Quartet, considered one of the nation’s most dynamic professional chamber orchestras, will embark on its 7th annual tour, launching at Miami’s New World Center on Tuesday, Sept. 30. 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 their highly acclaimed debut at Carnegie Hall in December 2004. Allan Kozinn described their performance as “first-rate in every way” and raved that “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.” The Sphinx Virtuosi is an ensemble of The Sphinx Organization, a national nonprofit founded by Aaron P. Dworkin, with Yo-Yo Ma serving as Special Artistic Advisor. This ensemble, which “…call[s] up the vision of an iconic mythological feline with its immeasurable power, unwavering command and soulful beauty,” (The Washington Post) boasts Sphinx Virtuosi’s 5th performance at Chicago’s Harris Theater, their Pacific Northwest United States debut and 11th performance at the world-renowned Carnegie Hall. This year’s theme, Americana, celebrates the many sounds of American music. Throughout history, artists have depicted current events and paid tribute to their respective heritage through music. “Americana” attempts to paint the musical and societal landscape that comprises the diverse kaleidoscope that is this country. Audiences will be serenaded by “romanceros” and celebrate 200 years of The Star-Spangled Banner as they enjoy a musical voyage that stretches from the prairie to the Arctic regions of North America to the South for country fiddling. The Sphinx Virtuosi will perform a new commission by composer Jessie Montgomery, and works by Sphinx Medal of Excellence recipient Gabriela Frank and Honorary Board Member Mark O’Connor. In addition to featured performances by the Catalyst Quartet, the tour will also feature Sphinx’s first bassist to win the national Sphinx Competition, Xavier Foley. The National Sphinx Virtuosi Tour is made possible with the generous support of The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, with additional support from the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation, Art Works, Aetna, and the Joyce Award. For tour information and tickets visit www.SphinxVirtuosi.org.

Rockport Photographer's Retreat November 6-9, 2014

As photographers and artists we constantly strive for new ways to see, new subjects to capture, and new experiences to drive our creative soul.  That is why the Rockport Photographer's Retreat was created. This is a relaxing and inspiring 4-day event for exploring, capturing, and creating works of art in the beautiful, artist community of Rockport, Mass.   Photographer's will have the opportunity to head to Thacher Island by boat in order to photograph the only operating twin lighthouses in the country during sunset. We'll then stay to photograph the full moon rise on the island which will enable us to capture some beautiful night photography lit by the moon.   We'll have the entire island to ourselves since it closes to the public in September.

Photographers will also have the opportunity to show their best work at a public art show & charity auction that we are putting on just for the participants of the workshop.  We will be marketing this art show in and around Rockport, and proceeds for the auction will go toward the Rockport Art Association.

Now that summer is over and the kids are back in school, it's time to do something for yourself. Come join other photographers for a weekend of shooting, processing, and more shooting.
