“Tonight begins a summer-long celebration – a 20-year tradition in Cedarhurst.” Announced Mayor Benjamin Weinstock, as he initiated the 2016 “Tuesday Night Concert Under the Gazebo”.
This year’s summer concert series promises entertainment for people of all ages. The first concert was kicked off with a pre-show from Lawrence High School Percussion Ensemble.
The 20-piece authentic swing band known as Swingtime Big Band then took the stage. Toes were tapping and fingers were snapping as they performed old swing favorites and classics from the Great American Songbook. Children hearing the tunes for the first time twirled alongside dancers revisiting their youth in the pavilion.
Over 60 benefactors contributed to the 2016 series including the opening night sponsors: TD Bank, Frank B. Lewis Attorney at Law, Bolla Market, Lawrence – Cedarhurst American Legion Post #339, John F. Capobianco, Architect, Bagelry, Minerva & D’Agostino PC. Mayor Weinstock explained “All of our sponsors played a vital part in making these concerts a reality since the very beginning.”
On July 12th the village brings Ireland to the park featuring – The Lavin’s & Company. We also invite your family to come and enjoy our playground and water park. You will be happy you did!
