Noho Sound is proud to host MusicTalks at our 14th Groupmuse live music event. The Noho Sound Live series continues at our soundproofed and acoustically treated loft in Noho, designed specifically for live and recorded music.

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.

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.

The musicians of DCA are highly trained professionals coming from the nation's top music conservatories and universities including Juilliard, Manhattan School of Music, NYU, Mannes and more. Diverse Concert Artists perform a wide array of music from classical to the latest music on the top of the pop charts.

In honor of Black History Month, join us for a concert by Diverse Concert Artists celebrating the incredible life and music of composers of color from classical to pop music. The program features a string quartet highlighting the life and music of notable African-American composers accompanied by anecdotes telling the stories of heritage, friendships and social justice.

As in every MusicTalks program the concert will offer introductions to the composers and their works, musical demonstrations, and fascinating anecdotes.

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.

We only have room for 40 people, including friends and community members, so there are limited spots available! Here's your signup link:

Smoking and drinking is encouraged, but the former is banned during the actual performance so as not to annoy the musicians.

We look forward to seeing you.
