Program: Please join us for an evening of classical music with Pelios String Quartet.

The musicians will play Haydn: Quartet in F Major OP. 77/2 IV Finale, Vivace Assai. Villa Lobos: String Quartet No. 6 “Brazilian” – III. Andante, Quasi Adagio. Debussy: String Quartet in G Minor – I. Anime et decide. Bartok: Quartet No.2 in a minor, Sz67 BB75 – II. Allegro Milton Capriccioso.

The Pelios String Quartet is composed of violinists Ellen Zhou and Clark Snavely, violinist/violist Tristan Zhu, and cellist Amelia Zitoun.  All four students are merit fellows at the Music Institute of Chicago’s Academy, a pre-college training program for gifted musicians, and are coached by Rodolfo Vieira. The group recently won the Gold Medal & Best Haydn interpretation at the national Saint Paul String Quartet Competition 2023. They will also be competing at the 2023 Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition in May. They have had the privilege of playing for the Cuarteto Latinoamericano, and in January were invited to perform for a preconcert recital at the Chicago Philharmonic. The name “Pelios”, derived from Greek mythology, refers to the god of emotion and passion. The myth of Pelios describes a conflicted deity whose power was to give people emotions. With happiness came great sadness, and with love came hate. Through their playing, they want to embody the spectrum of emotions Pelios delivers, as well as instill in their audience the indescribable, out-of-body feelings that come with making music.

Refreshments provided. Limit 30 people.
