Sheboygan, WI – As seen on America’s Got Talent, Sons of Serendip will perform at the Weill Center for the Performing Arts on February 18 at 7:30 p.m.
Sons of Serendip is a musical group of four friends, who through a series of serendipitous events, came together in graduate school at Boston University.
They came together in 2014 to begin a long beautiful journey of creating music that touches people’s hearts. They hope that their music will resonate deeply with listeners and that, in some way, it will make their lives a little better – even if just for a moment.
Micah Christian, a native of Randolph, Massachusetts, became interested in music at an early age. He realized his potential as a musician when he earned his first solo in the Massachusetts Southeastern District Senior Choir. He spent his summers performing with the Cape Cod-based a cappella group, Hyannis Sound, and his love for music deepened. Alongside Micah's passion for music is his desire to help build a better world. He has volunteered for a year in Honduras, and a month in Calcutta, India with Mother Teresa’s Missionaries of Charity. Also, in 2013, after graduating from Boston University with a Master of Divinity, he and his wife volunteered in a rural community in northern Peru for another year. As a member of Sons of Serendip, Micah hopes to inspire others to use their gifts to spread love and build a better world.
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.” 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. After completing his graduate studies at Boston University, he is thrilled his musical journey has led him to Sons of Serendip. 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 Deaf 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.
