Following two previous sold-out engagements, Well-Strung—the all-male string quartet—returns to Feinstein’s at the Nikko for San Francisco Fleet Week. The classically trained foursome will perform pop/classical mashups featuring hits by Stevie Nicks, Rihanna, The Outfield, Queen, The Beatles, Lady Gaga, Jules Massenet, Henry Mancini, Pasek & Paul, as well as a few patriotic songs.
Well-Strung is composed of Edmund Bagnell (1st violin), Chris Marchant (2nd violin), Daniel Shevlin (cello) and Trevor Wadleigh (viola). Conceived by Mark Cortale and Christopher Marchant, the foursome formed in 2012 and has since gained international attention.
Well-Strung has been invited to perform at the Vatican in Rome and at a gala for President Obama. Hillary Clinton, 2016 presidential candidate, 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 were the opening act for Joe Jonas and his band DNCE at Pride Toronto. They have appeared twice with the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus and co-starred in two Christmas concerts at Town Hall in Manhattan with the New York City Gay Men's Chorus in 2016. The group has received critical acclaim at New York’s Feinstein's/54 Below, House of Blues in New Orleans and the Leicester Square Theatre in London.
They have released a self-titled CD as well as their newest release “POPssical” which debuted at #8 on Billboard’s Classical Crossover Chart.
