Following a series of sold-out concerts at Carnegie Hall, the celebrated Sphinx Virtuosi come to The Berman Theatre for another Signature Series concert, featuring violinists Danielle Belin and Randall Goosby. The Sphinx Organization is a national non-profit, headquartered in Detroit that focuses on helping develop very talented young Black and Latino classical musicians.

Over a performance of J.S. Bach's Chaconne from Solo Partita No. 2 in D Minor, Bellen spoke about her relationship with the instrument when she spoke with WDET's Travis Wright. the Sphinx Virtuosi play the Berman Theatre on Saturday, December 13, 2014.
