The Los Angeles LGBT Center has announced a special one-night-only performance by the internationally acclaimed singing string quartet Well-Strung on Saturday, December 8, at 8 p.m. The four performers, who specialize in pairing universally recognized classical pieces while singing pop music hits, return to the Renberg Theatre with their hit holiday show, A Well-Strung Christmas, directed by Richard Jay-Alexander. The show features the group’s own unique pop-classical spin on some of the most beautiful and traditional holiday favorites from Silent Night and Sleighride all the way to Dolly Parton’s Hard Candy Christmas, and everything in between.

Well-Strung features first violinist Edmund Bagnell, second violinist Christopher Marchant, violist Trevor Wadleigh, and cellist Daniel Shevlin. Conceived by Mark Cortale and Christopher Marchant, the foursome formed in 2012 and has since gained international attention. They have been invited to perform at the Vatican in Rome and at a gala for President Obama. Their hit viral music video Chelsea’s Mom led to a special requested performance for 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton herself. They have also performed with artists such as Kristin Chenoweth, Neil Patrick Harris, Audra McDonald, and Deborah Voigt, and they were the opening act for Joe Jonas and his band DNCE at Pride Toronto. They have performed twice with the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus, and last December, they co-starred in two Christmas concerts at Town Hall in Manhattan with the New York City Gay Men's Chorus. The group has received critical acclaim at New York’s prestigious Feinstein's/54 Below and beyond, from the House of Blues in New Orleans to the Leicester Square Theatre in London. 

General admission tickets are $30 and may be purchased online at lalgbtcenter.org/theatre or by phone at 323-860-7300. Net proceeds from all ticket sales will support the full range of free and low-cost programs and services offered by the Los Angeles LGBT Center.

The Los Angeles LGBT Center’s Renberg Theatre is located at 1125 N. McCadden Place (one block east of Highland, just north of Santa Monica Boulevard), in Hollywood 90038.
