The Payson Park Music Festival begin its 24th season today at 6:45 p.m. with traditional Yiddish klezmer music with a Belmont connection.
The concert is free and suitable for all ages at Payson Park located a few blocks off Belmont Street at the intersection of Elm Street. There is off-street parking at the park and it is also accessible by the Number 73 (Waverly Square) bus line from Harvard Station.
The premier act of the 2013 season is di bostoner klezmer. The group – clarinetist (and Beech Street Center coordinator) Dena Ressler, World Champion accordionist Cory Pesaturo and drummer Richie Davis – plays spirited eastern-European Jewish klezmer music that will transport the audience from weddings in 18th-century Poland to 1930s Philidelphia and to pre-war cabarets and the yearly bonfires at Mt. Meron, Israel.
Tonight's sponsor is RE/MAX Renaissance Realty.
