Meredith Monk at the Garrison Institute

  • Meredith Monk

Meredith Monk makes artwork that is as layered and multifaceted as her titles of composer, singer, director/choreographer, and creator of new opera, music theater works, films, and installation suggest. Combining elements of dance, performance art, and visual representation into what are ultimately presented as sonic landscapes, her work defies description, though it's been described as ethereal, fearless, and innovative. For Monk, the voice is the original human instrument and an eloquent language of the heart. After teaching a sold-out workshop on meditation, environmental inspiration, and applications for the voice at the Garrison Institute on December 16, Monk will present a public concert and talk at 8pm. Tickets are $25.

While tie dye and tolerance have never really gone out of style around here, those who’d like to mark the anniversary in some way have a number of local goings-on to slake their thirst for nostalgia, peace, love and music. Hey now, we still know how to brew that stuff from scratch.
