Monday Morning Man: Christopher Marchant!

We take a break from World Cup players today to present to you Christopher Marchant who is a lot more than just a hunk (not that there’s anything wrong with that!).

Christopher is a second violinist with Well-Strung: The Singing String Quartet.

According to Huffington Post, Marchant, first violinist Edmund Bagnell, violist Trevor Wadleigh and cellist Daniel Shevlin tear through a set list that includes Mozart and Dvořák compositions alongside string arrangements of recent pop hits by Adele, Britney Spears and Ke$ha, during which the boys provide vocals.

In addition, each of the handsome, well-chiseled stars offers up winking anecdotes of growing up gay in between numbers, lending much of the act the breezy feel of cabaret with a hint of vaudeville.

Their debut show sold-out Joe’s Pub on May 1st, 2012 in New York after being workshopped at Ars Nova NYC in February.  Since then they have played venues across the world such as The Art House in Provincetown, the Leicester Square Theatre in London, 54 Below in New York, House of Blues in New Orleans and Feinstein’s in San Francisco.

If they book anywhere near Los Angeles, I am so there!

5 Remarks

  1. There are FOUR hot men in that quartet. Why feature so many photos of only one of them? This article sends mixed messages. It encourages readers to appreciate Well Strung’s style of classical music arranged with current pop hits, suggesting that having substance beyond physical appearance is a good thing, but implies that only one body type is preferable or desirable or worthy of being featured (contradicting the part that calls each of them “handsome, well-chiseled stars”). When I hear and see Well Strung perform, I enjoy looking at all of the members. The gay community deserves better from those covering news of interest to us, not this perpetuation of the idea that only extreme muscles can be considered attractive enough to feature in the media. The other three guys are hunks as well. How about more prominently featuring them as well?

  2. Dear CR, breathe.

  3. Dear Greg,

    Thank you for so seriously engaging with my comment. I appreciate the time and effort you put into considering my perspective as well as your carefully crafted response. Let no one ever say that you are not a true professional.

  4. I’ve never had the opportunity to see a live performance but have followed Well-Strung since hearing of them . I’ve been a supporter of LGBT rights & marriage equality for years but I’m not L G B or T however even though I’m old enough to be their mom or grandma I like to look – lust isn’t dead & neither am I . Best wishes for their continued success . I will continue to enjoy looking at 1 or all of these hotties ( old but not dead yet )

  5. To be fair, it does say Monday Morning MAN. Not men. Yes, it’s a feature of Christopher. He spends 18 hours a day in the gym, so I think he earned a beef cake spread. Lol.
