Each year your gifts support the Cypress String Quartet in its efforts to educate, to commission, and to give passionate and insightful performances. 
In the past 19 years we have toured from the San Francisco Bay to across the seas in Europe and Asia, recorded more than a dozen albums, and created a 15-year tradition with Call & Response, our popular and ever-growing and developing education outreach program. Every level of support is vital – especially in these trying economic times.

We remain committed to expanding our commissions from great composers, our performances, and our devotion to educational efforts in the Bay Area and throughout the country. This season we committed to an expansion of our educational outreach and renewed our promise to continue the Call & Response program without charge to schools and students.

However, our excitement and dedication to the mission and excellence of the Cypress Quartet are not enough to keep us going. We need your ongoing support to allow us to devote the enormous time and energy it takes to play, record and educate. Your contribution remains essential!
