June 9 ■ Fareed Haque and the KAIA String Quartet*

Join virtuoso guitarist Fareed Haque and the critically-acclaimed KAIA String Quartet for a magical afternoon of Latin American Music at the St. Charles Public Library on Sunday, June 9 at 2:00 p.m. The concert will be held in the Carnegie Community Room. They will perform songs from their new album on Delmark records.

Haque, whose ethnic heritage is Pakistani and Chilean, is a graduate of Northwestern University and recently retired from Northern Illinois University, where he taught jazz and classical guitar for 29 years. Haque has performed and recorded with a virtual who's-who of the jazz and classical music worlds. Television appearances have included WTTW's Art Beat and Chicago Tonight, Ben Sidran's New Visions, his own Lonesome Pines special on PBS, and on BET cable jazz programs. He is a multiple award winner from Downbeat Magazine, and in 2009 was voted Best World Guitarist by Guitar Player Magazine.

The KAIA String Quartet is a Chicago-based ensemble devoted to capturing the essence of Latin American culture through the medium of the string quartet. KAIA recently completed their residency with WFMT Chicago's classical and arts radio station where they performed, curated, and exposed audiences to new ways of thinking about Latin American music.

*Designates a classical concert funded through donations to the St. Charles Public Library Foundation.
