Yaletown String Quartet remains active and committed to helping our local communites and those abroad.
Here are some of our activities:
On August 24, 2011 YSQ donated a concert to raise awareness for OneMatch.ca, Canada's stem cell registry. OneMatch is part of Canadian Blood Services and is building a database of potential donors to save the lives of people with Leukemia and Lymphoma!
To learn more about how you can register as a donor go to: www.onematch.ca

Also see a video I made about my brother-in-law Dr. Steven Larigakis.

String Quartet donated a performance, part of the evening's
effort to raise awareness for the HIV/AIDS pandemic
in Africa, and to solicit donations to UNICE and thank Mr. Lewis for his tireless efforts and inspiring
