Feb. 11 TCCA concert

The Tonto Community Concert Association brings Sons of Serendip to Payson Tuesday, Feb. 11.

The Tonto Community Concert Association brings the quartet, Sons of Serendip, to the Payson High School auditorium at 7 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 11.

Sons of Serendip is a musical group of four friends comprised of a harpist, cellist, pianist and lead vocalist, who through a series of serendipitous events came together in graduate school at Boston University.

The quartet was a finalist on Season 9 of “America’s Got Talent,” gaining popularity by offering fresh interpretations of popular music. Their ethereal and emotionally stirring orchestral acoustic interpretations of pop music, arranged with unique instrumentals, captured the hearts of fans and judges alike. Sons of Serendip returned to the “America’s Got Talent” stage in January 2019 when they were chosen to compete in the first ever “America’s Got Talent: The Champions,” where they compete alongside 50 of the winners and finalists from “America’s Got Talent” and other “Got Talents” worldwide.

Since the talent competition, Sons of Serendip has toured nationally. Some performances include the Creative Arts Emmy Awards and collaborations with Cynthia Erivo, the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, and Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops.

Children and students under age 18 are admitted at no charge when accompanied by a ticketed adult. For more information, visit the TCCA website at www.tccarim.org or call 928-472-2423 or 303-903-2895.
