Through The Noise...

Just over two years after their first financially sustainable, informal crowdfunded classical gig, through the noise has ignited a new cultural movement in the realm of classical music events. Founded just over two years ago by Jack Bazalgette and Jack Crozier, this community interest company has swiftly evolved from a crowdfunded gig into a transformative cultural force, dedicated to making classical music accessible and vibrant. By reflecting local communities and collaborating on mental health initiatives with regional charities, through the noise fosters meaningful local relationships, connecting audiences to the best live music events. Today, they unveil plans for 81 new noisenights, featuring acclaimed international classical soloists performing in nightclubs and grassroots venues across 21 UK and European cities. This extensive lineup includes 17 tours and 3 exclusive solo dates, many of which feature artists who rarely appear in the UK, spanning from 16 January to 28 June 2024.

Most noisenights feature two short classical sets, one early evening, one late. Tickets to the late set usually include live music for the rest of the night, including jazz, latin, afrobeat, swing and funk acts.

This Spring’s newly announced line-up includes rare guitar and violin duets from Plínio Fernandes and Braimah Kanneh-Mason, three-time Songlines Award Seckou Keita, seven-time GRAMMY nominee Omar Sosa, two-time GRAMMY Award-Winning Attacca Quartet, ngoni and djembe star of the recent RSC production Hamnet Sidiki Dembélé, and the UK’s first women and non-binary orchestra Her Ensemble.

Artists making their noisenight debut are cellist Raphaela Gromes and pianist Julian Riem, pianist Isata Kanneh-Mason, kora player Seckou Keita, the Mela Guitar Quartet, the Attacca Quartet, baritone James Newby and pianist Joseph Middleton, the Vision String Quartet, the Vision String Quartet, the SUBA Trio, composer and musician Errollyn Wallen, string quartet Vulve Voce, pianist Samson Tsoy, pianist Lise de la Salle, violinist Elena Urioste and pianist Tom Poster, and baroque violinist Bjarte Eike and ensemble Barokksolistene.
