Building a new community for performances

What is Open Space Music?

Everyone needs connection, and we all feel this acutely during physical distancing. Open Space Music provides music and connection for the price of a movie ticket. Performers will be paid 97% of ticket sale proceeds from Live Performances. Connect with the artists and a community of listeners through Open Space Music offerings:

Upcoming Events

Open Space Music provides connection through a new model: creating without boundaries through video and audio events directly from artists' homes to yours

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

Partnerships

Working together in harmony

We are all interconnected

It is our belief that fostering relationship with our local communities and the larger world is essential to our existence. We are excited to partner with various performing music organizations around the country to present our artists together. The goal is three-fold: we want to connect with our local communities, we want to connect with the world, and we want our artists to thrive. 

A Far Cry

Called a “world-wide phenomenon” by Boston’s WBUR, A Far Cry has nurtured a distinct approach to music-making since its founding in 2007. The self-conducted orchestra is a democracy in which decisions are made collectively and leadership rotates among the players (“Criers”). This structure has led to consistently thoughtful, innovative, and unpredictable programming — and impactful collaborations with celebrated performers and composers. Over the past year, A Far Cry has risen to the top of Billboard’s Traditional Classical Chart, been named Boston’s best classical ensemble by The Improper Bostonian, and celebrated two Grammy nominations for its Visions and Variations. Through educational and community partnerships with students and members of Boston-area music organizations, A Far Cry aims to pass on the spirit of collaboratively-empowered music to the next generation.
