Enjoy classical noisenights in Liverpool and Birkenhead this spring
A series of special ‘noisenights’ are set to take place in Liverpool and Birkenhead this year.
The noisenights – organised by London-based through the noise CIC – are intimate gigs which aim to take world-leading classical musicians to independent venues.
At the heart of each event is a one-hour classical set featuring international soloists and ensembles as well as offering opportunities to outstanding new artists.

Sidiki Dembélé and friends come to the North Docks venue on Wednesday, March 20, featuring Djembe and kora virtuoso Sidiki Dembélé and percussionist Momo Sangaré.
Berlin’s Vision String Quartet will perform at the same venue on Saturday, April 20.
And on Wednesday, May 8, seven-time Grammy-nominated pianist Omar Sosa joins kora maestro Seckou Keita and master percussionist Gustavo Ovalles for an all-star collaboration – Suba Trio - presenting music inspired by their shared ancestral connection to Africa.
The Quarry in Love Lane will host Her Ensemble on Thursday, April 25.
Meanwhile Future Yard at Birkenhead is the venue for cello–piano duo Raphaela Gromes and Julian Riem on Wednesday, February 14.
