WHAT IS NOHO SOUND?
Noho Sound is a trio of hi-end audio showrooms & event spaces in NYC created by Alex Roy, Ron Kain & Chris Petranis, industry veterans and music lovers who wanted something better — space to hear the world's best audio equipment, and the live music that is the point of it all.

WHAT IS MUSICTALKS?
MusicTalks brings jazz & classical music to an intimate and informal setting. Performed by the finest young musicians, MusicTalks breaks down the barriers between musicians and audience by taking advantage of the intimacy that chamber music provides. With engaging and interactive conversation, the listener is given an experience that truly makes Music Talk.

WHAT WILL BE PERFORMED?
Fall in love to the most beloved and nostalgic jazz standards when MusicTalks returns with award-winning jazz singer Thana Alexa and MusicTalks' Jazz Quartet. The evening, featuring dazzling jazz standards and ballads, will include special guest star Michael Mayo as he joins Ms. Alexa for some of the best known flirtatious duets by jazz icons such as Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald. The evening will culminate with a special spotlight on Bach’s music through the lens of Jazz.
As in every MusicTalks program the concert will offer introductions to the composers and their works, musical demonstrations, and fascinating anecdotes.
WHAT'S A GROUPMUSE?
Groupmuses are something in between classical music concerts and house parties. They are a chance to spend quality time with old and new friends and to lose yourself in a profound artistic experience.
This particular Groupmuse will be followed by electronic and disco versions of the music performed, if they can be located on vinyl. If not, a digital download of William Orbit's EDM remix of Barber's Adagio for Strings will be played repeatedly for three hours, or until the last person leaves, whichever comes first. If four or more guests known to each other act inappropriately, Laibach's industrial cover of The Beatles' Let It Be will be played in its entirety.
HOW TO ATTEND
