Meredith Monk returns to present a concert spanning 35 years of her music-making career in honor of West Kortright's 35-year "career." In her more than 40 years as a composer, singer, director/choreographer, and creator of new opera, music theater, films, and installations, she has been acclaimed by audiences and critics as a major creative force in the performing arts. A pioneer in what is now called "extended vocal technique," Monk continues her groundbreaking exploration of the voice as an instrument creating landscapes of sound that unearth feelings, energies, and memories for which there are no words. She will be joined by members of her Vocal Ensemble, including Katie Geissinger and Allison Sniffin.
