Sons of Serendip are second to perform in local arts series

LEWISTOWN — Sons of Serendip are the second act in this year’s Mifflin-Juniata Concert Association season. Their show is at 7:30 p.m. Friday in the auditorium of Mifflin County High School.

Sons of Serendip is a unique quartet consisting of a harpist, cellist, pianist and lead vocalist. The quartet gained popularity after appearing on season nine of America’s Got Talent as a “most musically talented contestants” finalist. Their music is a fresh mix of emotionally expressive classical, gospel and popular music.

Since the talent competition, Sons of Serendip has toured nationally, lighting up audiences with their creative and emotionally stirring arrangements and original compositions. Some notable performances include the Creative Arts Emmy Awards, as well as collaborations with Cynthia Erivo, the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, and Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops.

All students age 18 and under are admitted free; non-member adult admission is $25 at the door. During the concert season, if school is canceled or there is an early dismissal due to weather conditions on concert day, the concert will not be held, but will be rescheduled, if possible.
