THURSDAY FEBRUARY 9th, 2012
Violinist Aaron Dworkin grew up in a world where he was one of very few classical musicians of color. In response, he founded The Sphinx Organization 15 years ago to help overcome the cultural stereotype of classical music and to encourage the participation of Blacks and Latinos in the field. Thanks to efforts like his, orchestra halls across the country and even the world have begun to diversify. Aaron speaks with ArtServe Michigan about his incredible personal journey and the progress of his mission through Sphinx.
