Grupo Serenada started in 1975 with the help of Irma Romer, the mother of the musical maestro, Harry Moen. Grupo Serenada is a fusion between a church choir and a rock band.
As teenagers, Harry Moen was in a rock band while Kevin Carty was from the church choir. They decided to experiment together back in 1974. At the time, they called themselves, Twilight Zone & Company during a presentation at the musical,”Gospell”. The group liked the combination so much that they decided to preform together more often. A year after the first concert, Grupo Serenada was born.
Back then the group consisted of twenty teenagers; nowadays, after thirty years, a few of those teenagers are still part of Grupo Serenada. In 2015, Grupo Serenada turns 40. Generations in Curaçao grew up to their music and this 40th anniversary gives us the opportunity to get to know this musical group from Curaçao a little bit better, by portraying the close and intense friendships that the group has developed during these years.
