Sphinx Tank Grant Recipients Announced

Corbin Castro, DuMarkus Davis, and Allyssa Jones will each receive $15,000 to aid their work as artists and entrepreneurs

The Sphinx Tank Grant was created to identify emerging arts and cultural entrepreneurs of color and their innovative projects.

Recipient Corbin Castro is the co-artistic director of Virtual Inclusion Artists, which provides free and virtual music education to youth across the United States. Since its launch, 161 students spanning 37 states, Puerto Rico, and Canada, were taught through one-on-one mentorships and diverse teachings.

Second recipient DuMarkus Davis is the founder and CEO of Musicbuk, a virtual learning platform that connects aspiring musicians of any level to professional musicians for one-on-one lessons. Students are matched with teachers with a quick survey that asks questions on their experiences and learning styles.

Final recipient Allyssa Jones is the founder of Rising Tide Music Press. This organization publishes print work by Black, Brown, Indigenous, and Asian composers in the first 10 years of their professional-level work as composers and arrangers. The goal of this organization is to become an "ecosystem" of music that builds on the diversity in the United States.
