Brogan & Partners' Deidre Bounds named Board Chair of Sphinx Organization.

[Birmingham, MI] - Deidre Bounds, managing partner at Brogan & Partners Convergence Marketing has been named board chair of the Sphinx Organization in Detroit. The Sphinx Organization provides educational programs and competitions for black and Latino musicians, to encourage diversity in the classical music world.

"I am honored to serve as board chair for this amazing organization," said Bounds. "Detroit is filled with young classical music talent, and Sphinx is offering them experiences and opportunities that otherwise may not have been afforded them.

This fall Sphinx Laureates at Carnegie Hall will feature the Sphinx Chamber Orchestra and the Harlem Quartet, both comprised of top alumni of the prestigious Sphinx Competition for young Black and Latino string players.

The name Sphinx was given to the organization to represent some of the founding principles that guided its conception. The Sphinx represents the historical and geographical source for many minorities and exemplifies the power, wisdom and persistence that we hope to instill in our participants. Like the Sphinx, it is up to the beholder, the listener, to interpret and appreciate from the music what is ultimately a reflection of internal emotions and spiritual experiences.

The Sphinx Organization is a national non-profit founded in 1996 by Aaron P. Dworkin. A violinist himself, he founded the organization to help overcome the cultural stereotype of classical music, and to encourage the participation of Blacks and Latinos in the field.
