Noa Even is a versatile saxophonist whose work as a performer, educator, and presenter is guided by her dedication to the arts of today. In addition to creating new work through commissioning and close collaboration with living composers, she interprets traditional classical repertoire and improvises.
Atomic, Noa’s current long-term commissioning project, features solo works for saxophone, interactive electronics, and video that explore themes of human connection. Noa performs regularly with her duos, Ogni Suono and Patchwork. Both ensembles have commissioned numerous works and often pair university performances with master classes, student composers reading sessions, and discussions on entrepreneurship in the arts. In 2017, Noa co-founded Cleveland Uncommon Sound Project (CUSP), a non-profit organization that champions new and experimental music. She is Assistant Professor at Kent State University where she teaches saxophone, co-directs New Music Ensemble, and coordinates the Vanguard New Music Guest Artist Series.
