through the noise is a new crowdfunding platform (founder and artistic director Jack Bazalgette) aimed specifically at live classical events. The idea is that members of the public are invited to become ‘backers’ in return for tickets to their chosen event, and priority booking for future events. Each event is confirmed when it achieves sufficient backing, ensuring that only concerts that are popular with audiences go ahead.

The platform is going to be trialled with a new classical performance series, noisenights. Each evening will feature two identical 45-60 minute classical sets; an early evening rush-hour performance and a late show which is followed by live jazz, funk and afrobeat acts, accompanied by a late-licensed bar. Tickets to the late set include access for the rest of the night.

The first two noisenights are at Underbelly Hoxton. On 9 July 2021, cellist Laura van der Heijden and violinist Max Baillie perform Kodaly’s duo alongside Bach, Bartok and their own arrangements of folk music, then on 8 August 2021, the Chineke! Duo (Sarah Daramy-Williams, violin and Natalia Senior-Brown, viola) performs music by Errollyn Wallen, Joseph Bologne, Schubert, Mozart and Martinů.
