July heats up at the SCA with Well-Strung back in Saugatuck for two nights! This “talented quartet of men who sing and play instruments brilliantly, fuses pop and classical music from Madonna to Beethoven” (The New York Times). With the recent release of their third studio album, Under the Sheets, the group continues to land on the Billboard charts.
Well-Strung 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. Come see why Out Magazine says, “Aside from all being incredibly gorgeous, the men of the singing string quartet Well-Strung are talented masters of turning pop hits into instrumental wonders.”
Conceived by Mark Cortale and Christopher Marchant, the foursome stars Edmund Bagnell (first violin), Christopher Marchant (second violin), Daniel Shevlin (cello) and Trevor Wadleigh (viola). The group has performed onstage with the likes of Kristin Chenoweth, Neil Patrick Harris, Audra McDonald, Deborah Voigt, and the Gay Men’s Choruses of San Francisco and New York City. They’ve been invited to play at the Vatican, a gala for President Obama, by Hilary Clinton, and for several appearances on The Today Show. Their performances have been well received at New York’s prestigious Feinstein’s/54 Below, the House of Blues in New Orleans, the Leicester Square Theatre in London, and beyond. In the fall of 2018, Well-Strung embarked on a two-week international US Embassy Cultural Engagement tour that included performances in Russia, Istanbul, London and more.
