Sons of Serendip is a unique Billboard Charting quartet consisting of a harpist, cellist, pianist and lead vocalist. The quartet was a finalist on Season 9 of America’s Got Talent, gaining popularity by offering fresh interpretations of popular music. Since the talent competition, Sons of Serendip has toured nationally, lighting up audiences with their creative and emotionally stirring arrangements and original compositions. Some notable performances include the Creative Arts Emmy Awards, as well as collaborations with Cynthia Erivo, the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, and Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops.
“[Sons of Serendip] are the most musically talented contestants on the show.”
-Howie Mandel (America’s Got Talent)
“[The album] is alive with detail but silky beyond reason. It will make you spend money that you don’t have.”
-New York Times (“Christmas: Beyond the Lights” Review)
“The instruments and the vocals gave a sort of call-and-response that was mesmerizing.”
-MD Theater Review (AMP by Strathmore)

The William H. Gile Trust was created by Helen B. Gile in 1952. She left a legacy of more than $700,000 to finance a free concert series in Concord, New Hampshire in memory of her father, William H. Gile. Helen Gile stipulated that the trust funds were to be managed by what is now Citizens Bank, and that the selection of shows “of the highest type in all respects” was to be made by a committee of three local citizens. After much planning, the first William H. Gile Concert Series was held during the 1960-61 show season, and, over 55 years later, we are happy to now call the Capitol Center for the Arts our home.
The Selection Committee strives to present a diverse offering of performance types, to include some shows that are suitable for children, and to expose the community to performances that they might otherwise not have a chance to see. Please let us know if you have any ideas for future shows.
If you would like to make a tax-deductible gift to help the William H. Gile Trust continue to provide free concerts for years to come, please contact Nicole Herbst in the Citizens Bank Trust Department at (603) 634-7737.
