Serenity Coffeehouse hosts a monthly concert, performed by professional musicians and ensembles of music students including children, youth, and adults from diverse backgrounds and ethnicities. Musicians are drawn from local towns and music organizations. Over the past 20 years, musicians have included vocals, piano, organ, cello, violin, and flute. They play solo, in duets, or in larger groups.
Joyce Carpenter-Henderson founded Serenity Coffeehouse in 1999 and serves as Artistic Director.
The gathering is held at the Salem Covenant Church in Worcester, MA at 215 East Mountain Street, Worcester, MA. Parking is available in the front and rear of the Church.
