Cedar Crest Holiday Sing-Along Featuring Jay Isaacson

Thursday, December 8, 3 p.m.

Be sure to bring your festive voice to Cedar Crest’s Holiday Sing-Along. Welcome in the holidays by joining in on your favorite classic tunes of the season.

Vocalist and pianist Jay Isaacson will be hosting a sing-along, showcasing classic holiday songs, featuring his warm vocal style.

After the performance, we invite you to enjoy Christmas cookies, and we will also be offering tours of our maintenance-free one- and two-bedroom apartments. Take in the beautiful holiday decorations and meet some of our residents to discover the sense of community that is so inviting here.


Cedar Crest events are usually located on the Terrace Level of the Independent Living apartment areas. It's for your convenience that we recommend you park close to the apartment buildings. There is a surface parking lot connected to the apartments. It can be reached via the first driveway on your right if you are coming from the North (via State St.), or the third driveway on your left if you arrive from the South (via Kellogg Ave). Watch for blue/green flags near the designated driveway. NOTE: GPS systems will route you to the Main Entrance of the Skilled Care Center. Parking near that area will require you to walk farther to the event site than using the convenient access off the apartment parking lot.
