What can I expect at the Live Performances?
The Live Performances take place on Zoom and you will be able to see the artists and listeners.
The shows are live-streamed from the musicians' homes and last about an hour.
The programs include thoughtfully curated musical pieces by artists, often showcasing a variety of different sounds and influences interspersed with engaging talks by artists.
The performances are warm and friendly, and the listeners will have opportunities to clap for the artists when the pieces are done.
There is always a Q/A at the end of performances
97% of our ticket sales for Live Performances go directly to our artists
How we present our concerts and artists matter.
Until March, the classical music concert scene was vibrant. Young and established artists alike could perform for audiences worldwide. The coronavirus pandemic has canceled every event, removing the life blood of musicians. Some artists have turned to presenting their music for free as a source of comfort for others, but our concerts provide more than comfort: they provide sustainable community for you and for your favorite artists. We commit that 97% of the proceeds from our tickets sales for Live Performances will go directly towards the artists featured on our series. 3% covers transaction fees.
Open Space Music creates communities and connects you to the artistic process directly. We are excited to share these events with you. Join us!
From our family to yours
Co-founders Hyeyung Sol Yoon and Gregory Beaver were members of the Chiara String Quartet for 18 years with whom they performed and recorded the Bartok and Brahms String Quartet Cycles by heart and were nominated for a Grammy for their recording of Jefferson Friedman's String Quartets. They moved on from that endeavor in 2018 and now live in Jersey City, NJ with their two daughters and a cat who sits on them every night with occasional intense eye contact. Hyeyung loves her violin and enjoys gathering people who love music like her. Greg loves his cello and computer programming. Like everyone else, they were thrown off their course by the COVID-19 epidemic, but they're excited to embark on this new journey to bring people together in a new way.
