The Fiato Quartet
The Fiato Quartet was formed in 2008. Its members are Carrie Kennedy and Ina Veli, violins, Aaron Oltman, viola and Ryan Sweeney, cello. The members of Fiato hold degrees in music performance from the Colburn School, University of Southern California, New England Conservatory, Rice University, Northwestern University, and the State University of New York at Stony Brook.
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, Santa Barbara Symphony, Santa Barbara Chamber Orchestra, New West Symphony, and Musica Angelica Baroque Orchestra.
In addition to the standard quartet repertoire, Fiato has a passion for new music. Over the years they have premiered ten new string quartets by local composers, including works by Julia Adolphe and Adam Schoenberg.
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.
