In 2016 The Crimson River Quartet from San Juan Capistrano, CA will celebrate our 24th Anniversary. The group met for the first time in June, 1992, began recording our debut project in August, and sang our first concert on September 26, 1992. Since then the group has performed hundreds of concerts in 10 states from California to Virginia to Texas, recorded two live videos and ten recording projects.
