The New York Times called Well-Strung “A talented quartet of men who sing and play instruments brilliantly fuses pop and classical music from Madonna to Beethoven.” Well-Strung, featuring Edmund Bagnell (violin), Christopher Marchant (violin), Daniel Shevlin (cello) and Trevor Wadleigh (violin), is a string quartet with a modern twist. The group plays universally recognized classical pieces while singing pop music hits from the likes of Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Kelly Clarkson, and other pop stars for a uniquely engaging Experience.
Conceived by Mark Cortale and Christopher Marchant, the foursome has gained international attention. This past September their third album entitled “Under The Covers” debuted on Billboard’s Classical Chart at #3 and the Classical Crossover Chart at #4. In 2016 they were invited to perform at the Vatican in Rome and at a gala for President Obama. Their hit ‘viral’ music video “Chelsea’s Mom” led to a command performance for and meeting with Hillary Clinton herself. The group has received critical acclaim at New York’s prestigious Feinstein’s/54 Below and well beyond, from the House of Blues in New Orleans to the Leicester Square Theatre in London.
Well-Strung has performed three times on The Today Show and also appeared with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live. Well-Strung’s second album entitled POPssical debuted at Number 8 on the Billboard Classical Crossover Chart last fall. They have also performed with artists such as Kristin Chenoweth, Neil Patrick Harris, Audra McDonald and Deborah Voigt. They have performed twice with the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus and have co-starred in two Christmas concerts at Town Hall in Manhattan with the New York City Gay Men’s Chorus. They also opened for Joe Jonas and his band DNCE at Pride Toronto.
