String Quartet blends classical and contemporary at the SCA

The music of Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Adele, and Lady Gaga​ normally finds its home on the radio dial. But four young men from New York have given it a different home: on the strings of their violins, viola and cello.


The Huffington Post described the group as, “A genius mash-up of boyband and classical string quartet.”


Well-Strung is comprised of Edmund Bagnell (first violin), Christopher Marchant (second violin), Trevor Wadleigh (viola), and cellist Daniel Shevlin. Saugatuck isn’t new to Shevlin, as he is a Mason Street Warehouse alumni, who performed in the musical “Alter Boys”.


See why the New York Times says Well-Strung is, “A talented quartet of men who sing and play instruments … brilliantly fusing pop and classical music from Madonna to Beethoven.”


Well-Strung is sponsored by Hilliard Lyons of Holland, CKC Architect/Charles Carlson, Scott Habermehl, Renee Zita, Larry Gammons & Carl Jennings.
