The entire ensemble consists of over twenty professional musicians in the greater Boston area.

The Group performs for weddings, graduations, commencements, parties, corporate functions and funerals. The CBQ was founded in 1977 at Boston University's School for the Arts, as a Graduate Touring Ensemble. Early appearances of the group included the opening of the J.F. Kennedy Library in South Boston, Pope John Paul II's visit to Boston in 1978, the founding of Chamber Music Series at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, and Marsh Chapel at Boston University, Quintet-in-Residence at Old North Church for three years, and live performances on WCRB, WBUR, and WGBH.

On January 7, 2002, the CBQ performed for the Mayor of Boston, the Honorable Thomas M. Memino's Inauguration at Fanueil Hall, which was broadcast live on the local major TV networks.
