Composer/Performer Meredith Monk has been deemed “a magician of the voice,” and “one of America’s coolest composers,” amazing audiences across the globe with her genre-spanning compositions for more nearly 50 years. Her groundbreaking exploration of the voice as an instrument, as an eloquent language in and of itself, expands the boundaries of musical composition, creating landscapes of sound that unearth feelings, energies, and memories for which we have no words.
