Music in the Garden:Tim McDonald Quartet

Saturday, August 3 - 6:00 PM

Ben Franklin Community Garden proudly presents its annual Music Series. Nestled in the tranquil greenspace of Ben Franklin Community Garden, this series promises a delightful escape into the world of music amidst nature's embrace.

Featuring an eclectic lineup of Northeast Ohio-based professional artists, the Music Series will captivate audiences on the first and third Saturdays from June to September. The one-hour performances begin at 6 p.m., offering a perfect opportunity to unwind and enjoy the magic of live music in a serene setting. In the event of rain, the shows will be rescheduled to Sunday at 2 p.m., ensuring that the music never stops.

Next up, 8/3 is the Tim McDonald Quartet! Saxophonist and jazz composer, Tim McDonald, got his start in the Northeast Ohio music scene in high school playing with local swing and blues groups. The music of Tim’s quartet is a mix of original music and arrangements from all decades.

The Garden is located at 1905 Spring Road, behind Benjamin Franklin Elementary School, between Broadview Rd. and the Jennings Fwy (176). Parking is available in the school parking lot. Guests are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs. The garden is wheelchair accessible and invites anyone seeking further details on accessibility to reach out to Mark Tapajna at 216-276-1183.

So, mark your calendars and join us for a delightful way to start your Saturday evenings —whether you're a music enthusiast, a nature lover, or simply looking to discover a remarkable eco-friendly urban space. Best of all, it's free!
