About Us

The Ellinor String Quartet was formed in 2017 by Puget Sound-area violinists Li-Ling Liao and Christopher Lin, violist Rafael H. Howell-Flores, and cellist Janice Ching-Jung Lee. Ellinor’s mission is to bring classical music of the highest caliber to diverse communities throughout Greater Seattle through accessible performances in intimate neighborhood spaces, from public schools and libraries to local churches. The quartet takes its name from Mount Ellinor, a stunning peak in the nearby Olympic Mountains.
