About SPA

Sphinx is proud to have two host institutions for the SPA: Roosevelt University in Chicago, IL and the renowned Oberlin Conservatory in Oberlin, OH.

The Sphinx Performance Academy is a full-scholarship intensive chamber music and solo performance program designed for aspiring Black and Latino string players, ages 12-17. The acclaimed Catalyst Quartet, Sphinx’s premiere chamber ensemble, will serve as Senior Faculty for both sessions. Private lesson instruction will be provided by the Resident Quartet, comprised of top alumni of the Sphinx Competition.

This blog is our forum to share stories and pictures of what happens at  the Sphinx Performance Academy.  Click on the 2016 at the top right of our website to view each program’s posts.
