Noah is a renowned performer of traditional klezmer music, a musical style which has been part of his life since an early age. He has performed with world-renowned klezmer groups such as Brave Old World and has taught at klezmer workshops throughout Europe and the United States. 

Noah has composed music since an early age, and in 2016, he composed and premiered his own klezmer violin concerto, Fidl-Fantazye, with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Manfred Honeck. He has since played the piece with the Buffalo Philharmonic, China Philharmonic, Santa Cruz Symphony and at the Brevard Music Festival.  In 2021 he performed the world premiere of the chamber version of his Klezmer concerto with the Kammerakademie Potsdam. The 2022/23 season features a return to the Pittsburgh Symphony with the work, as well as the Baltimore Symphony and Pro Musica Columbus. In April 2023, Noah will present a Late Night Klezmer concert with members of the Berliner Philharmoniker at the Philharmonie, performing his klezmer concerto.
