Open space brings strings

The idea of bringing music to the Open Space gallery isn’t new, it’s just been a little sporadic.

The gallery’s new music co-ordinator, Andrea Young, hopes to enhance the concept and begin a prominent blending of music with art at the lower Fort Street exhibition space.

The transformation begins tomorrow (Feb. 26) when the East Van Strings kick off Open Space’s High Tension contemporary string series.

“We’re trying to explore the idea of experimental strings,” Young says, noting the gallery has previously delved into experimental piano.

Saturday’s concert starts at 8 p.m. at 510 Fort St. Tickets are $15, or $10 for Open Space members or students. Series passes available in advance.
