The Catalyst Quartet are part of the Latino-African American chamber orchestra Sphinx Virtuosi, performing Friday night at St. Pauls By The Sea Episcopal Church through the Jacksonville Beaches Fine Arts Series.

The 18 piece conductorless ensemble was founded to encourage minority classical music performers to have a career in the field, and they have been described by the San Francisco Classical Voice as,  "highly talented, confident and stylish," and, "a response to the oft-maligned image of classical music as stodgy, old, elitist, and white."
