Transformations™: Sphinx Performance Academy - Minority Musicians become Major Performers

It aims to help Latino and African-American players, who are underrepresented in US orchestras, develop as musicians through its courses, competitions and outreach work. We visited the Sphinx Performance Academy in Chicago, a summer camp for young string players, to hear the stories of these minority musicians.
