Out string quartet—and former Metrosource cover-boys—Well-Strung have released a holiday video for “Silent Night.” It’s beautiful.
The video is a simple rendition of the carol, layering by verse before tapering to pleasant a capella vocals. It was shot by Bill Blank at the Marigny Opera House in New Orleans.
Additionally, it was edited by Randy Rainbow, who exercised restraint by not inserting soundbites of Patti LuPone rants into the traditional hymn.
The group have also released the track, which was arranged by Well-Strung first violinist Edmund Bagnell, as a single. The new video coincides with the group’s national tour called “A Well-Strung Christmas,” making stops in Chicago, New York City, Woodstock, Ft. Lauderdale, West Palm Beach and Orlando.
Well-Strung (Edmund Bagnell, Christopher Marchant, Daniel Shevlin and Trevor Wadleigh) was featured (“Strings of My Heart”) on a 2014 cover of Metrosource. The four out string players reinvent and infuse pop and classical music. Their second album, POPssical, was released this past October.
