Founded in 1999 at the Bowdoin Music Festival, the quartet has performed as guest artists at Carnegie Weill Hall, the Music Under Construction series and on WQXR in New York City, and in the Colorado Quartets Soundfest Festival in Cape Cod. The quartet premiered two trombone quartets written for them and Haim Avitsur by Gerald Cohen and Robert Cuckson.
