The Open House movement began in the 1980’s in London as a celebration of the city’s justifiably famous architecture but it was so successful that it soon spread to more than 40 cities around the world. For five years, Access Contemporary Music has commissioned composers to write music inspired by the spaces and put musicians in the spaces to perform the music. We’ll feature a wide range of music written for, and performed in, buildings in Chicago, Milwaukee and Barcelona.
