Last night the fantastic musicians of the Boston Percussion Group (BPeG) played new music and old favorites to an enthusiastic audience at Magazine Beach’s Music in the Park series. The versatile members of BPeG all met while studying at the acclaimed Boston Conservatory and now, as BPeG, perform music from all styles and genres, from arrangements of popular tunes to Ghanaian folk music to cutting-edge contemporary and classical works. Friday’s audience relaxed, picnicked, and danced to BPeG’s beats as the sun set on Magazine Beach.
Part of our recent efforts to revitalize Magazine Beach through the arts, Music in the Park is a series of free concerts taking place outside and (very soon, we hope!) inside the Powder Magazine building on Magazine Beach in Cambridgeport. Each Music in the Park concert features a professional music ensemble from the Boston/Cambridge area, each expressing a unique point of view on music today.
Don’t miss the next Music in the Park on August 22, 6-8pm, with the Arneis Quartet performing elegant and exciting works for string quartet!
Thank you to Tori Cheah for producing this event and to Sanofi and the Charles River Conservancy for sponsoring it! Thanks also to Julie O’Neil for the closeup photo of BPeG performing!
Remember, yoga in the park each Saturday through August 16.
