Open Space Music envisions a space where the boundaries between groups of people, including artists and audience, fade away inspiring creative freedom. We create events where artists and audience members can share through call and response, improvisation, and participation with movements, words, and sounds.
What is Open Space Music?
Open Space Music is teaming up with Homecoming, a community-led organization working to support food security for New Yorkers by driving business to local New York restaurants.
On September 19th, 2021, there will be a restaurant crawl in Jackson Heights, Queens that features five restaurants that represent the spirit and culture of the neighborhood. Each ticket sold brings business the restaurants and includes a donation to the local food pantry.
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.
Open Space Music was launched in 2020 in response to the pandemic and physical distancing. It presented over 35 online events over Zoom in its first season and brought together around 2000 audience members and 35 artists around the globe. They're excited to continue on this journey to bring people together in a new way in a wide open creative space.
