The New York Times raved about Well-Strung by calling them “a talented quartet of men who sing and play string instruments and brilliantly fuses pop and classical music from Madonna to Beethoven.” They recently made their second appearance on The TODAY Show this past October, and the foursome has quickly gained international attention playing in London, Rome, and Vienna, as well as selling out venues across the United States.
Well-Strung’s new CD POPssical debuted at #8 on Billboard’s Classical Crossover Chart and #9 on Billboard’s Classical Chart. This past October, they performed at the DNC’s Gala in NYC honoring President Obama. They have also appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen and performed with Kristin Chenoweth, Audra McDonald, and Neil Patrick Harris. The quartet features Edmund Bagnell (first violin), Christopher Marchant (second violin), Daniel Shevlin (cello), and Trevor Wadleigh (viola).
