About Benin International Musical

The musicians of the Detroit-based Sphinx Organization perform a timely program in conjunction with the nationwide 400 Years of Inequality initiative. Damien Sneed’s “Our Journey: 400 Years from Africa to Jamestown”—from his opera We Shall Overcome—explores the plight of Africans forced into slavery with musical styles from the African American diaspora, while Michael Abels’s Global Warming celebrates diverse cultures. There’s also Philip Herbert’s moving string piece memorializing a teenage victim of racial violence, a new work by Xavier Foley co-commissioned by Carnegie Hall, and classics by Schubert and Bartók.
