“We thought our folks would love an outdoor concert and we thought we’d share the fun with our friends and community,” said Carol Silver Elliott, Cedar Village’s President and CEO.
Buffalo Ridge, based in Greater Cincinnati, specializes in classic traditional jazz with an entertaining and humorous presentation. The band appeals to listeners of all ages. Founded in1994, it plays in jazz clubs, on cruises, in parks and at jazz festivals.
Buffalo Ridge will perform on Cedar Village’s lawn near its gazebo.Guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets. In case of rain, the concert will be held indoors in the Wilbur and Mary Jean Cohen Religious and Cultural Center. Free refreshments will be provided.
The concert is made possible through the generosity of the Harkavy Fund. The Harkavy Fund was established in memory of Frank Harkavy, Cedar Village’s first board chair. It was established by his grandson, Max, who asked that his Bar Mitzvah gifts be directed to the fund and used to enhance programming for Cedar Village residents.
