Well-Strung, the critically acclaimed singing string quartet, is returning to New Orleans this month on May 11 & 12 at Cafe Istanbul! Get tickets here now – or call 1-800-838-3006. Well-Strung is sponsored by The New Orleans Hotel Collection.
Well-Strung, starring Edmund Bagnell (first violin), Christopher Marchant (second violin), Daniel Shevlin (cello) and Trevor Wadleigh (viola), 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 called Well-Strung “A talented quartet of men who sing and play instruments brilliantly fuses pop and classical music from Madonna to Beethoven.”
They have been invited to perform at the Vatican in Rome and at a gala for President Obama. Hillary Clinton requested a special performance by Well-Strung after the release of their viral music video “Chelsea’s Mom.” They have also performed on the The Today Show, and live onstage with artists such as Kristin Chenoweth, Neil Patrick Harris, Audra McDonald, Deborah Voigt, and Joe Jonas. 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’s second studio album, POPssical, debuted at #8 on Billboard’s Classical Crossover Chart, and features ten tracks including renditions of “Blank Space (Feat. Bach)”, “Royals (Feat. Palladio)” and the infamous ode to Hillary Clinton, “Chelsea’s Mom” – Available
