Fermi String Quartet
Sunday, April 30, 2023, 2:00 p.m.
The Irving Park Fine Arts Committee is pleased to present The Fermi String Quartet on April 30th at 2 pm. The Quartet is an ensemble of four highly experienced Chicago musicians, formed in 2018 to honor Beethoven’s 250th anniversary. In addition to their work together as a quartet, these talented artists have performed internationally and with some of America’s most important professional orchestras and chamber ensembles. Since 2021, the FSQ has been in residence at the Southern Illinois Music Festival, presenting master classes and performances, as well as performing in the Festival Orchestra. The quartet name is in tribute to Dr. Enrico Fermi, who first split the atom at the University of Chicago. Fermi String Quartet members include violinists Linda Veleckis Nussbaum and Nina Saito, violist Jessica Lipon and cellist William Cernota.
The concert will be held at 2 pm at Irving Park Lutheran Church, 4100 N. Harding Ave. There is no charge for admission, but donations to support future programming are gladly accepted. The Irving Park Fine Arts Committee, now in its 29th season, was created by Roger Bingaman, Director of Music at Irving Park Lutheran Church. The intent of the series is to bring high quality, professional music to the northwest side of Chicago, free of charge. The series is a program of Carlson Community Services, a 501c3 non-profit whose mission is to connect the Irving Park community with programs that enrich lives through education, culture and service.
