About Well-Strung:


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



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. 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.
