A String Quartet with a Modern Twist
At Sounds of a Summer Night 2017
165 Hobart Avenue
Summit, NJ 07901
Summit, NJ Come to Reeves-Reed Arboretum on Wednesday evening, August 9, to experience the remarkable WELL STRUNG, the singing string quartet with a definite modern twist – playing classical pieces while singing favorite pop songs! The New York Times called WELL STRUNG, "A talented quartet of men who sing and play instruments...brilliantly fuses pop and classical music from Madonna to Beethoven."
WELL STRUNG, featuring Edmund Bagnell (first violin), Christopher Marchant (second violin), Daniel Shevlin (cello), and Trevor Wadleigh (viola), plays universally recognized classical pieces while singing pop music hits from the likes of Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Kelly Clarkson, and other pop starts for a uniquely engaging experience.
The August 9 concert, featuring WELL STRUNG, will be dedicated to the Summit Area Public Foundation. The Trustees and Staff at RRA will take this opportunity to celebrate the support and encouragement SAPF gives to the Arboretum, and to many nonprofits in Summit as well as the surrounding communities.
This is the final concert of Sounds of a Summer Night '17 concerts-in-the-garden series at the Arboretum, and once again, will be dedicated to the Summit Area Public Foundation. The Arboretum grounds open up at 6 pm for concertgoers to picnic and the performance is from 7 pm to 8 pm. The cost is free to RRA Members (thanks to underwriting support from Investors Bank). There is a $10 per person donation for non-members, $5 for students). Bring your blankets, lawn chairs and picnic baskets. Sounds of a Summer Night '17 is supported, in part, by Nick & Tracy McKee and The Grand Summit Hotel. Visit www.reeves-reedarboretum.org for more information.
