Meredith Monk

Meredith Monk is a composer, singer, director, choreographer, filmmaker, and creator of new opera, music-theater works, films and installations. Considered one of the most unique and influential artists of the last 50 years, she is a pioneer of what is now called “extended vocal technique” and “interdisciplinary performance”. Monk has received numerous awards and honors, including the MacArthur “Genius” Award, Carnegie Hall’s 2014-15 Debs Composer’s Chair, Officier of the Order of Arts and Letters from the Republic of France, and a 2015 National Medal of Arts from President Barack Obama. Celebrated internationally, her work has been presented at major venues throughout the world. 

Meredith Monk will perform at Sanctuary on Friday March 10th.
