Catch A Double Dose Of Sons Of Serendip At Caffè Lena

It seems like forever ago, but remember that massive snowstorm that hit Saratoga Springs back in early December? Besides making parking even more of a headache in town, it also led to the cancellation of one of Caffè Lena’s most highly anticipated events: the Sons of Serendip, a critically acclaimed classical-crossover quartet, who met at Boston University and gained national attention on reality series America’s Got Talent (on which they placed fourth during Season 9).

The band has released a trio of full-length albums, including a popular Christmas album, over the five years. They most recently released a lush cover of British pop band Keane’s “Somewhere Only We Know” and an original single, “Love You Still.”

The group will be playing two shows, one at 5pm, another at 7:30pm. For more information on the show and to purchase tickets, click here.
