Eclectic crooners: Sons of Serendip, local singers, cover holiday tunes in Stamford
Published 12:00 am, Sunday, December 3, 2017
The aptly named quartet the Sons of Serendip does not let genre cloud its desire to mix up styles and eras when it comes to the music. As versed at R&B and soul as they are at classical music, the members of the group will hit the road this month to bring that eclectic approach to holiday favorites.
One of those stops is Stamford, where the group will perform music from its 2015 recording “Christmas, Beyond the Lights,” and its latest, “Life + Love.” The group formed in 2014, the same year it became finalists on America’s Got Talent. Since then, vocalist Micah Christian, pianist and guitarist Cordaro Rodriguez, cellist and vocalist Kendall Ramseur and harpist Mason Morton, who serendipitously came together in graduate school at Boston University, have performed around the country with superstars such as John Legend and musical groups including the Boston Pops.
The group has covered Kate Bush’s “A Woman’s Work,” Stevie Wonder’s “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” and Cyndi Lauper’s “Time After Time.”
Joining the group onstage for its Stamford performance will be local singing groups, including the Darien High School Tudor Singers, Darien’s Middlesex Middle School’s Camerata Singers and the Greenwich Public School Honor Choir.
Palace Theatre, 61 Atlantic St., Stamford. Friday, Dec. 8 at 8 p.m. $35 to $22.50. 203-325-4466.
