Sounds of Serendipity

Curated by Peter Breiner, Sounds of Serendipity is a concert series featuring new and emerging composers and musicians who incorporate the latest musical developments while at the same time staying firmly rooted in traditions of Czech musical Culture.

Photo Gallery

Enriched with online presentations, the series will also lead thought provoking discussions and interviews about the future of classical music.

What had started as a series of house concerts is now an opportunity for young musicians and composers to present their efforts to the public. The series is the result of the many encounters Breiner has had with local musicians, both professionally and personally. Sounds of Serendipity concerts present an incredibly high level of musicianship and artistry.

More information about Sounds of Serendipity can be found online at soofser.com.
Following concerts are on March 11, April 25, May 30

Curated and introduced by Peter Breiner
Produced by Sasha Santiago and Czech Center New York
