through the noise’s crowdfunded concert series, noisenights, will make its debut appearance at The Cluny in Newcastle on Friday 2nd December. The event aims to take classical stars out of the concert hall, and into pubs, clubs and music venues.

Performing are cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason, who became a household name in 2018 after performing at the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex at Windsor Castle, and award-winning improvising jazz, classical and new-music pianist and composer Harry Baker. The pair will perform improvisations around folk songs and jazz standards, in addition to compositions by Bach and Mahler. There are two ticket options – an early-evening rush-hour set starting at 7pm, or a late show at 9pm, which is followed by a funk, soul and disco DJ set.

through the noise Co-founder and Artistic Director, Jack Bazalgette, adds, “Following a tough few years, it’s encouraging to see how excited audiences are to support live music. After crowdfunding ten London noisenights in the past year, we’re grateful to our growing base of backers for enabling us to take our model for classical shows to audiences around the country. This is a huge step for us. 

I’m a massive fan of every musician we’re hosting in the coming months: every one of them has the power to capture an audience, especially when up close in an extraordinary venue like The Cluny in Newcastle.”
