EXIGENCE, the new Sphinx Organization vocal ensemble, is dedicated to the belief that there is a great need, an exigence, for diversity in the arts and the world of choral music. Lead by founding conductor Eugene Rogers, EXIGENCE is comprised of vocal artists within the Black and Latino communities, including solo performers, voice-teachers, conductors and composers who recognize the power of community and expression through choral music.
A Vision Unfolding is the inaugural performance by this groundbreaking group and will feature a range of music from traditional classical concert repertoire to newly commissioned works by Black and Latino composers. Using three perspectives of the concert theme, A Vision Unfolding of mercy, equanimity and hope, the program includes works by Verdi, Beethoven, Villa-Lobos, Woo, Guillaume, Castañeda, Hearne, Hill and two premieres – A Vision Unfolding by Derrick Spiva, Jr. and Caged Bird by Joel Thompson.
A Vision Unfolding at the Hartford Baptist Memorial Church in Detroit on February 2nd, 2018, is a part of SphinxConnect – Sphinx's national convention, the epicenter for artists and leaders in diversity. Tickets for A Vision Unfolding will be available online or at the door. This inaugural performance by EXIGENCE will be followed by a performance on Feb. 4th at the Finals Concert of the national Sphinx Competition for young Black and Latino string players (tickets sold separately).
Please join us for what is sure to be an unforgettable evening of music with EXIGENCE: A Vision Unfolding.

Hemsing Associates | Performance
The New York Choral Society (NYCHORAL), under the baton of music director David Hayes, will appear at Carnegie Hall’s Stern Auditorium (881 7th Ave, New York, NY 10019) with Where Even the Sea Sings, Sunday afternoon, February 11, 2018, at 3 pm. This program juxtaposes three composers of very different backgrounds and styles, inspired by a shared commonality in theme: the grandeur of the “sea”. Each composer responds to this theme in a different way, allowing the audience to experience a deep, personal, journey of the soul. It includes Sir Charles Stanford’s Songs of the Fleet, Op. 117, featuring baritone Jarrett Ott and the East Coast premiere of American composer Frank Ticheli’s Symphony No. 3 “The Shore.”
