BENEFITING: CHILDRENS INN AT NIH

Quadrivium String Quartet

THE STORY:

We, Spencer Tate, Natalie Hsieh, Katherine Kim, and Phillip Lee, are the Quadrivium String Quartet. You might ask why we chose The Children’s Inn (The Inn) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) as the charity to dedicate our fundraising efforts. The reasons are many, but we’d like to share a few here.

As a young child, one Quadrivium member listened to her father’s stories about many patients from the United States and other countries who have traveled to NIH and stayed at The Inn, while seeking treatment for genetic diseases such as sickle cell anemia. These stories interested her, and she passed them along to Quadrivium members. We were inspired, and together, we decided that our music needed to reach those who couldn’t reach us. We knew right away we wanted to support this organization. 

For many children with medical illness, specialized treatments are only possible with the support of The Inn, which provides free room and board. The Inn is a “place like home”, and supports these young patients with therapeutic, recreational, and educational programs, as well as scholarships for patients to pursue studies in art, music, schooling, or extracurricular classes. 

It is here that we wish to recognize the people who connected us with The Inn. The friendship and guidance of long-time Inn board member, Mr. Mark Raabe and his wife, Jean (an early, passionate volunteer who we strive to emulate), led us to the staff at The Inn, so that we could share our music at family dinners for Inn residents. We are grateful that this idea became reality, and we treasure this special opportunity. 

When Quadrivium began our journey with The Inn, we searched for ways to use our music to fundraise. One business that we contacted was in downtown Frederick, whose owner heard our story. She told us that her family member had actually stayed at The Inn while receiving medical treatment at NIH, and they were so well cared for. She was pleased to support us as we raised money for The Inn. This is yet another reason we are excited: the Inn’s mission extends to help people in our own community. The Inn is truly a place that brings hope to so many.

In Latin, quadrivium means crossroads. Originally, we chose this name because we were a group of multi-ethnic musicians who have traveled different roads to meet, and to make what we hope is entertaining and enjoyable music. We still are, and have since expanded this idea to encompass other crossroads. This season, we play and ponder about many people whom we met at the crossroads at The Children’s Inn. 

It is our privilege to be part of this extraordinary mission, and to bring life and purpose to our music. We hope to contribute financially, so those facing a medical difficulty would have one less obstacle to overcome. Would you help us to keep this mission going by donating to The Children’s Inn at NIH?
