Friends of Noise seeks to foster healing and growth for the creative youth of our community. Our all ages concerts and workshops provide live performance opportunities for youth artist and hands on experience for youth sound engineers.
Bottom Line for Portland
In 2018 Friends of Noise paid over 50 youth artist to perform in over 25 all ages concerts to an audience of over 1000! We've held 8 free Teen Music Biz Workshops with more than 50 participants. We've also held 50 bi-weekly youth committee meetings where our youth participants plan and produce our concerts.
"The Portland Farmers Market Music program has greatly benefited from the work of Friends of Noise. We rely on music to keep up the energy, with Friends of Noise we are having more fun! We couldn’t be more proud of our partnership and their youth participants!"
