    WOW!! I just watched a news clip on the Sphinx Music Organization and it blew me away! This is an organization that searches for & develops music talent from the inner cities of America.

    The organization was started by Aaron Dworkin. His life is a story in itself. In his own words...

    "I was born in 1970 to a white Irish Catholic mother and an African-American Jehovah’s Witness father. Being adopted by a white Jewish couple at 2 weeks of age, I eventually saw myself as a white, black, Irish Catholic, Jehovah’s Witness Jew with an Afro who played the violin."

    The Sphinx music organization searches for and develops classical music talent from young Americans of African and Latino descent.

    Check out this man's story and some of the talent he has developed on the internet.

    here's a few links to get you started.
