One day in 2018, Bay Area natives Elbert Tsai, Rochelle Nguyen, Christina Simpson, and James Jaffe got together to read quartets. After an improbably successful reading of Schubert's huge G Major Quartet, Elbert asked, "Do you guys like to rehearse?"

The group began rehearsing regularly, developing a shared musical taste and sharing it with audiences in California and France. They chose their name at a retreat in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
