Restoration Concert Presents Fiato Quartet

The Fiato Quartet will be featured at the Restoration concert on Sunday, Feb. 11, at 4 p.m.
The program will include pieces from composers Haydn, Shostakovich, Webern and Mendelssohn.
The concert is presented by the Restoration Concerts Committee of the Friends of the South Pasadena Public Library and will be held in the historic Library Community Room at 1115 El Centro St. Tickets will be available at the door for $25.
The Fiato Quartet, winner of the 2022 Beverly Hills National Auditions, was formed in 2008. Its members are Carrie Kennedy and Joel Pargman, violins, Aaron Oltman, viola, and Ryan Sweeney, cello.
The musicians of Fiato currently have active concert careers throughout Southern California. They are members of the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, Los Angeles Master Chorale, Pasadena Symphony, Long Beach Symphony, New West Symphony, and Musica Angelica Baroque Orchestra. As studio musicians in Los Angeles, they also record music for motion pictures, television and records.
Each member of Fiato brings a unique set of experiences and training to the ensemble, having studied with the Tokyo, Takacs, Guarneri, American, Miami and Emerson quartets. The Fiato Quartet has come together out of a love for chamber music and a common goal to share this passion with others through both formal and outreach concerts.
The Restoration Concerts Committee, a committee of the nonprofit organization, The Friends of the South Pasadena Public Library, has a goal to bring world-class music at an affordable price to the concertgoers in South Pasadena and surrounding communities. As the name suggests, net proceeds from the concerts provide restorations, enhancements and other benefits to the South Pasadena Library and Community Room.
