Well-Strung 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.
The New York Times recently called Well-Strung 'A talented quartet of men who sing and play instruments (that) brilliantly fuse pop and classical music from Madonna to Beethoven.'
Conceived by Mark Cortale and Christopher Marchant, the foursome formed in 2012 and features Edmund Bagnell (first violin), Christopher Marchant (second violin), Daniel Shevlin (cello) and Trevor Wadleigh (viola).
Notable appearances include performing at the Vatican in Rome and at a gala for President Obama. They’ve performed with artists such as Kristin Chenoweth, Neil Patrick Harris, Audra McDonald, Deborah Voigt, and they were the opening act for Joe Jonas and his band DNCE at Pride Toronto. Hillary Clinton even requested a special performance by Well-Strung after the release of their viral music video “Chelsea’s Mom.”
They have performed twice with the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus and co-starred in two Christmas concerts at Town Hall in Manhattan with the New York City Gay Men's Chorus in 2016. 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.
