Klezmer concert kicks off Boston Jewish Music Festival

(Continued)

“Our philosophy for the music festival is that we like to bring the music to the people, rather than just (hold concerts) in downtown Boston,” Ball said.

The concert is sponsored by the North Shore Jewish Federation. More than 17,000 people have attended the Boston Jewish Music Festival during the past three years. Started in 2009 by Joey Baron and Ball, the festival seeks to enhance appreciation for all forms of Jewish music, while also introducing the genre to a wider audience. The festival offers a mix of concerts, workshops and forums.

IF YOU GO What: The Boston Jewish Music Festival preview concert When: Tonight, 7:30 p.m. Where: Congregation Ahavas Achim, 53 1/2 Washington St., Newburyport How: $20 at the door. Tickets are $18 in advance and can be purchased at http://bjmfnorthshore.bpt.me/.
