Nationally recognized multi-instrumentalist Noah Hoehn to perform.
Minnesota State University, Mankato Department of Music News Release, 9-3-2013
MANKATO, Minn. – Nationally recognized multi-instrumentalist Noah Hoehn will perform Sunday, September 15 at 7:30 p.m. in the Elias J. Halling Recital Hall of the Earley Center for Performing Arts, 320 Maywood Ave.
Noah Hoehn has transformed his teenage love of the harmonica into a one-man showcase of musical skill. Noah has boldly combined acoustic instruments with the technologies of live looping, MIDI programming and automated mixing into a distinct and cohesive sound. Hoehn records single layers of harmonica, marimba, rhythm tracks and vocals in his looping system, allowing his audiences to experience live, the construction of a complete song. Zen-like concentration and blues-inspired expression help make Hoehn’s performances original every time he steps on stage.
Noah Hoehn is a two-time recipient of the prestigious McKnight Artist Fellowship for Performing Musicians. In 2007, Hoehn played harmonica in the Minnesota Opera’s world premier production of “The Grapes of Wrath” at the Ordway Theatre in St. Paul, MN. Recently, he appeared with the regional super-group, the “Radio Specialists,” at the Orpheum Theatre in Sioux Falls. Noah’s solo performances include appearances on Minnesota Public Radio and National Public Radio.
In addition to his performance on the University campus, Noah Hoehn will present a program to the students at Maple River West Middle School on Monday, September 16.
