Sons of Serendip Male Quartet will perform at the Faith Tri-Cities Auditorium, on March 24, 2020, at 7:30pm.
A musical group of four friends, who through a series of serendipitous events, came together in graduate school; two teachers, a former attorney, and a former cello instructor. They each had been playing their instruments since childhood, but in 2014, they came together to start a long beautiful journey of creating music that touches people’s hearts. To this day, they continue to create beautiful music with a harp, piano, cello, and voice. Their music resonates deeply with listeners and, in many ways, makes their lives a little better – even if just for a moment.
Kendall Ramseur is a singer-songwriter, composer, and cellist from Charlotte, North Carolina. Kendall’s relationship with music began at age seven when his father purchased an upright piano for the family. While excelling in his piano studies, Kendall found his instrument of choice at age 10, “My orchestra teacher laid all the instruments on the floor in the classroom and told each student to stand by the instrument of their choice… the cello really sparked something in me”. Kendall chose the cello that day, and one of the ways he would express himself chose him. He then went on to receive his Bachelors and Masters Degrees from the University of North Carolina School of the Arts and Boston University, in Music Performance with a concentration in cello. As a member of Sons of Serendip, his hope is that this quartet will inspire others through their music, creating an experience one will never forget.
Mason Morton was born in Atlanta, Georgia. He lived in a house full of love and encouragement with his mom, an aunt, and his grandparents. He always admired his grandparents, and he says he learned his drive, determination, and taste in music from them. His love of music was instilled early on, and quickly became a passion for him. Mason began to see his own potential with the help of his harp mentors: principal harpist of the Atlanta Ballet, Nella Rigell, and former principal harpist of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Ann Hobson Pilot. It was their combined confidence in Mason that gave him the courage to believe in himself. After completing his graduate studies at Boston University, he is thrilled his musical journey has led him to Sons of Serendip. It is here he has gained the brotherhood he has longed for. As a member of Sons of Serendip, he hopes that his journey will help to inspire others to follow their dreams.
Cordaro Rodriguez was born in Charlotte, North Carolina. He began teaching himself piano at the age of 10 and became well-versed in several other instruments as well as in music production. He has produced music for several well-known international artists such as Verbal, Kylie Minogue, CREAM, and Def Tech. After graduating from Princeton University in 2008 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology, he spent a year volunteering as an English teacher in Ecuador. He then attended Boston University School of Law where he received his Juris Doctor degree in 2012. At Boston University he serendipitously reconnected with his childhood friend, Kendall Ramseur, and met his future bandmates — Mason Morton and Micah Christian. As a member of Sons of Serendip, Cordaro is very grateful to have the opportunity to pursue his love for music.
Sons of Serendip were finalists on season 9 of America’s Got Talent. They continue to create beautiful music through the use of a harp, piano, cello, and voice.
