Sons of Serendip

Vocal and instrumental quartet Sons of Serendip will perform at Wenatchee High School as part of the Wenatchee Community Concert series. The quartet competed as finalists on the “America’s Got Talent” TV show last year.

Their music is a blend of acoustic and pop with an orchestral interpretation. The musical group came together after “a series of serendipitous events” while attending graduate school at Boston University, according to the group’s biography.

The artists had been playing their instruments for decades before banding together in 2014. Their hope is that what they create, through music, will help improve the lives of other people.
