This Summer, noisenights developed an intriguing way of creating classical concerts, using crowdfunding so that only concerts that are popular with audiences go ahead, and putting concerts on in non-traditional venues. This Winter their season continues with two further events, cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason will appear with pianist Harry Baker in Space 289, a converted railway arch in Bethnal Green, and cellist / composer Abel Selaocoe will bring his blend of European and African musical traditions to The Jago, Dalston.

On 4 December 2021, for noisenight three Abel Selaocoe will perform two sets at The Jago, which is in the old buildings of the Hackney Gazette printing press, the venue is known for hosting acts ranging from reggae to techno, but noisenight three will be The Jago’s first classical night. Selaocoe's 7pm and 9pm sets will be followed by a series of afrobeat and jazz bands across the club’s two floors into the early hours.

On 15 January 2022, for noisenight four Sheku Kanneh-Mason and Harry Baker perform two sets at Bethnal Green’s Space 289 with a programme that features Boulanger, Bach, and improvisations around folk songs and jazz standards, the Harry Baker's jazz trio play an aftershow set until late for anyone with tickets to the 9pm show.
