Out & About


“It’s an oasis of peace there colliding gently with kindred spirits basking in those unoccupied spaces of the mind,” she said.

Currie, who has been photographing families and children for 15 years, refers to the exhibit’s essence simply as “common threads.” Her subjects embrace the fine art of yoga with the energy of the museum’s sanctuary. She said the Tenshin-En has long been one of her favorite spots to visit.

“The moment I arrive, I am struck by its invitation for quiet contemplation — much like the invitation when we come to our mats in (yoga) practice. This new collection of work represents my expression of these parallels of calm beauty,” she said.

An opening reception for the show takes place tomorrow from 5 to 8 p.m. at the gallery located at 281 Concord Ave. in Cambridge.

Young musicians on Netherlands tour

Two Andover students are finishing up a 12-day tour of The Netherlands with the Boston Philharmonic Youth Orchestra.

Clarinetist Nicholas Brown and harpist Anna DeLoi are among 116 students who took their talents overseas to culminate the youth orchestra’s first season.

Since June 15, the musicians, who range in age from 13 to 21, have been performing and teaching throughout The Netherlands, including a final concert Thursday, June 27, at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam featuring Mahler’s Symphony No. 2, “Resurrection,” where the composer himself once conducted the piece.

The youth orchestra is due to return home Friday, June 28. For more on the group, visit
