Biography

Originally from Charleston, South Carolina, Noah Barnhart has been a performer for over 13 years. At an early age, Noah had a natural fondness and talent for the instrument, which drove him to pursue music at a higher education level, majoring in Classical Cello Performance, and studying under Dr. Carmine Miranda at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee. He graduated in 2022 with a Bachelor's of Music.

 

At the same time, Noah enjoys listening to and playing in all different genres.  Inspired by the virtuosity and songwriting of artists like Steve Vai, John Petrucci, and Eric Johnson, rock and metal music is also a passion of his. Nowadays getting inspiration from modern progressive bands such as The Dear Hunter, Caligula's Horse, and Opeth, he has begun to write his own music, and aims to go on tour in the future.

Based in Nashville, Noah has performed with extremely talented and upcoming artists, and ensembles ranging from: chamber music, orchestral ensembles, church choirs, bluegrass, and jazz fusion groups. During his time at Belmont, he performed with the Belmont symphony orchestra, playing in the nationally televised Christmas at Belmont PBS special, as well as serving as Principal and Co-principal of the Belmont Symphony Orchestra. Most recently he had the opportunity to play in a cello quartet for the chamber strings program, where he performed first cello in a recording and video of Julius Klengal's Theme and Variations in G Major, Op. 28 at Nashville's historic Ocean Way Studios. The very first Dolby Digital recording of this piece is now available to be watched on YouTube.
