'A Well-Strung Christmas' Returns to Broward Center

A Well-Strung Christmas brings the singing string quartet back to the Amaturo Theater at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts on Saturday, December 9 at 8 p.m.

The seasonal concert directed by Richard Jay-Alexander features the ensembles own unique pop-classical spin on some of the most beautiful and traditional holiday favorites such as "Silent Night" and "Sleighride," all the way to the modern classic "Hard Candy Christmas" and everything in between.





Well-Strung performs at the Broward Center prior to returning to Feinstein's/54 Below in New York. The New York Daily News reported, "They're the hottest things with a bow since Jennifer Lawrence in The Hunger Games. The fetching fiddlers of Well-Strung aren't out to draw blood though, just melt hearts."

Conceived by producer Mark Cortale and Chris Marchant, Well-Strung derives its unique blend of vocals and strings by fusing classical music with the pop music of today. Members Edmund Bagnell (1st violin), Chris Marchant (2nd violin), Daniel Shevlin (cello), and Trevor Wadleigh (viola) spend their time making new music and touring internationally.

Well-Strung's second studio album, "POPssical," is a celebratory blend of pop hits sung by the group accompanied by respected classical music. The group has performed with artists such as Kristin Chenoweth, Neil Patrick Harris, Audra McDonald and Deborah Voigt.

Tickets are $35-$45 with $75 VIP tickets that include a post-show meet and greet with the artists.
