DETROIT (AP) — A music competition open to young black and Latino string players is being held at the home of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.
The annual Sphinx Competition concludes Sunday at the Max M. Fisher Music Center.
Open to all junior high, high school, and college-aged black and Latino string players residing in the U.S, the competition offers young classical musicians a chance to compete under the guidance of a panel of judges and to perform with established professional musicians in a competition setting.
Its goals are to encourage, develop and recognize classical music talent in the black and Latino communities.
The Detroit Symphony has hosted the Sphinx Finals Concert for more than a decade.
