In the earlier days of the COVID pandemic, after a series of outdoor concerts, the Garneau String Quartet (GSQ) was formed. In 2022, they became the Quartet-in-Residence at MacEwan University Conservatory of Music in Edmonton, Alberta. The quartet is comprised of members of the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra — violinists Robert Uchida and Laura Veeze, violist Keith Hamm, and cellist Julie Hereish. As part of their residency, the quartet performs a series of concerts throughout the season. They also coach young artists in the Chamber Music Academy Program who work with guest artists, and participate in performance classes and recitals
