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.
