In 2020 as the initial months of the pandemic bore on and indoor performances continued to be banned, many musicians began performing outdoors in San Francisco. Thus the Cecilia Ensemble was born. Members of the quartet perform regularly with the S.F. Opera and Ballet Orchestras. As a quartet they have performed at Dolores Basilica, Throckmorton Theater (Mill Valley), The Gough house and the Episcopal Church of the Incarnation.
