Well Done, Well-Strung!
Well-Strung, four handsome young men calling themselves the “Singing String Quartet,” took to the Rehoboth Beach stage for the third year on July 25, with a Summer Lovin’ benefit performance for CAMP Rehoboth’s 25th anniversary year.
As these men began to perform, we soon realized they have much more to offer than their buff good looks. They all exhibited a rare combination of talent and skill: classically-trained string players, credits in musical theatre, a pleasing vocal blend, and tons of charm. These men performed an amazing and difficult program with professionalism, style, and ease, while making it enjoyable for everyone.
This quartet uniquely fused classical music with today’s pop music, resulting in a performance more like a cabaret than a concert. The audience was treated to fascinating and creative mashups of Karl Jenkins’ “Palladio”/Lorde’s “Royals,” Pachelbel’s “Canon in D”/Green Day’s “21 Guns,” among others. At the end, the audience wanted much more, and they got it—as an encore, the men performed a medley from Disney’s “Frozen” that was one of the best vocal performances of the night.
I’m sure I speak for all those in attendance when I express my grateful thanks to everyone who made this performance possible. This concert, like the Philadelphia/Portland Gay Men’s Choruses last summer, offers another cultural alternative to those that already exist here.
If you were not able to attend Summer Lovin’, you owe it to yourself to purchase their CD or check them out on YouTube. Their brand of entertainment is unique, high energy, yet very easy to listen to. Well-Strung is, well…fun!
