Daniel Pearl World Music Days Event Returns to Cedar Village

Cedar Village to Host Another Daniel Pearl World Music Days Event

Mason, OH:  (10/17/17)– Golf Manor Synagogue and Cedar Village, a Mason-based organization providing care and community to Cincinnati’s seniors, will collaborate on their 2nd annual Daniel Pearl World Music Days concert on Sunday, October 29th.  Three hours of musical performances will begin at 1 p.m., with audience members expected to come and go throughout the show. The program is FREE and open to the public.

Daniel Pearl World Music Days commemorate Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, who was kidnapped and murdered by extremists in Karachi, Pakistan. This international network of concerts uses the power of music to reaffirm a global commitment to tolerance and humanity. These events are held each year in October, commemorating the month Pearl was born. Since 2002, 13,900 performers in 140 countries have participated in the awareness-raising program.

Attorney Paul Plotsker, who serves as the Chairman of the Board of Directors for Golf Manor Synagogue, brought the program to Cedar Village last year.

“I’m so glad to be able to honor Daniel Pearl with this concert,” said Plotsker. “Remembering him and what he stood for is crucial in this day and age.”

To date, performers will include:

  • Cincinnati New Horizons Orchestra
  • Opera singer Pietro Tomaino
  • Sarah Michelle Plotsker, piano and Michael Emanuel Plotsker, vocals
  • Hailey Barnes, composer and singer
  • Jaemeson French, violin and Youngwon French, piano
  • Erik Svendson, alternative rock
  • Dana (“Destine81”) Garnett, beat music


“Guided by Jewish values, Cedar Village serves people of all faiths and backgrounds,” said Cedar Village CEO Dan Fagin. “This program is about tolerance and bringing people together. We are so glad we can partner with Golf Manor Synagogue again to bring the Daniel Pearl Music Days program to our region and host it at Cedar Village.”
