“The Sphinx Organization is the Detroit-based national organization dedicated to transforming lives through the power of diversity in the arts. 
The organization’s founding and mission were informed by the life experiences of Aaron Dworkin, the organization’s founder. As a young Black violinist, he was acutely aware of the lack of diversity both on stage and in the audience in concert halls. He founded Sphinx while a graduate student at the University of Michigan, to address the stark under-representation of people of color in classical music. President Obama’s first appointment to the National Council on the Arts, Aaron P. Dworkin currently serves as dean of the University of Michigan’s School of Music, Theatre & Dance, which is ranked among the top performing arts schools in the nation.   Now led by Afa S. Dworkin, its President and Artistic Director, Sphinx programs reach over 100,000 students, as well as live and broadcast audiences of over two million annually. Sphinx works to create positive change in the arts field and in communities across the country through a variety of programs…” © 2016 Sphinx Organization
