Quartet kicks off concert season

The Central Lakes Concert Association will kick off its season at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 18, at 7:30 p.m with Sons of Serendip at the Lake Geneva Christian Center, 605 Birch Ave., in Alexandria.

Formed by four friends who came together in graduate school at Boston University, the group bases its name on the way they met. The quartet strives for a performance that is classy, genuine, spiritual, sensitive and timeless. In 2014, they finished fourth on "America's Got Talent."

Their concert program focuses on fairly contemporary music, some with a fresh twist, and some familiar pop tunes from Motown.

Central Lakes Concert Association events are only open to members. For more information, call Kathi Haug at 320-815-8979.n desk or by calling 320-763-1162.
