Egyptian soprano Fatma Said will open Through the Noise’s Classical Club Nights series in “noisenight19.”
Said’s set will feature pieces from her latest release, “Kaleidoscope” with a focus on tango-inspired music and jazz. Award-winning composer and jazz pianist Harry Baker and bandoneon player Julian Rowlands will accompany her.
“Kaleidoscope” shares a blend of cultures and genres, as well as showcases Said’s passion for dance. The album contains opera, operetta, film, and pop music sung in six languages. Earlier this month it won the 2022 Presto Music Award.
Through the Noise established Noisenights to re-envision classical music concerts through informal crowdfunded events featuring international soloists in unique locations.
The performance takes place Feb. 10, 2023 beginning at 8 pm at the Oslo Hackney.
In addition to this showcase, Said is set to appear n a series of Christmas Concerts alongside David Hope and Daniel Geiss and the Belgrade Chamber Orchestra in Hamburg. She will also perform alongside tenor Rolando Villazón in concert at Baden-Baden on New Year’s Eve before taking on a chamber performance in Berlin.
