Current Season

2018-2019 Concert Season

November 19-20, 2018: Virginia Area Residency - Rockbridge County and Buena Vista City Schools

What Is Noise will present educational residencies to Rockbridge County and Buena Vista City Schools in Virginia. Collaborating with music directors Ms. Shannon Light and Mrs. Jennifer Matthias, the ensemble will introduce the children to new music through the performance of works by living composers. The goal of this residency is to introduce them to new styles and genres of music as well as to different styles of music making. Each member of the ensemble has a unique background and we hope to share that with the children we will be working with.

March 23, 2019: CD Release Concert - Brambleton, VA

March 25-27, 2019: Montgomery County Residency - Albert Einstein High School

What Is Noise will present an educational residency program at Albert Einstein High School in Kensington, MD. This collaboration with Instrumental Music Director Mr. Brendan Kelly has developed throughout the past few years. The program, entitled “Music: A Home Away From Home.” will feature works written by living composers that are representative of their home. Many of us have transplanted to new places and find that our ‘home’ is always a part of us, even as we establish ourselves somewhere new. At the same time, a new place can become home. The pieces we have selected for this program present that dichotomy through music.


This residency is supported in part by funding from the Montgomery County government and the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County.
