Sons of Serendip, a musical quartet, will perform in Washington, Friday, April 12, at 7:30 p.m., at Washington Area Performing Arts and Events Center. The Center is located in the high school at 1111 S. Avenue B. The Washington Concert Association and The Washington Area Performing Arts and Events Center are co-sponsoring this event.

Sons of Serendip, a group of four friends, came together through a series of serendipitous events in graduate school at Boston University and thus formed an inspiring musical quartet.

Their name comes from the notion that “serendipity brought us together.” Each member has an inspiring story, and together the group strives to embody the adjectives Classy, Genuine, Spiritual, Sensitive and Timeless.

Tenor Micah Christian was a teacher, keyboardist Cordaro Rodriguez was an attorney, cellist Kendall Ramseur was a cello instructor, and harpist Mason Morton was a teacher. In 2014, serendipity gave them the chance to perform on the ninth Season of America’s Got Talent. They were fourth- place finalists, and that launched their musical career. They also performed on America’s Got Talent again in February this year.

Their concert program focuses on fairly contemporary music — often with a fresh twist — as well as some familiar pop tunes from Motown. All numbers feature Christian’s beautiful tenor voice and the harmonious accompaniment of Rodriguez, Ramseur, and Morton.

Sons of Serendip provides an interesting combination of voice and instruments producing a lovely rich, melodic sound. They have been playing their instruments since childhood, but in 2014 they came together to begin a long beautiful journey of creating music that touches the hearts and souls of others.

Members of the group hope that their music will inspire their listeners to follow their dreams and pursue their love for music. They wish to spread love and build a better world, and to create an experience one will never forget.

This is the last concert of the 2018-19 season for both the Washington Concert Association and the Washington Area Performing Arts and Events Center.
