Well-Strung, featuring Edmund Bagnell (first violin), Christopher Marchant (second violin), Daniel Shevlin (cello) and Trevor Wadleigh (viola), is a string quartet with a modern twist, performing live at the Seminole Theatre on Saturday, January 27th at 7pm.
Know their chiseled torsos and matinee idol faces, they seem like an inspired novelty act, aiming to blur the line between high and low art.
See their YouTube Video page.
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 wrote: Muscles, Mozart and marketing: following the strippers’ dictum from “Gypsy,” “You Gotta Have a Gimmick,” the four stars of “Well-Strung: The Singing String Quartet” present themselves as a buff, pop-classical hybrid of juicy boy band and staid chamber group with a vocal component.
