Meredith Monk’s Big Week

Ms. Monk has a big event tomorrow.

A small army of performers, including 25 dancers and nearly 100 choristers, will occupy the spiral ramp of the Guggenheim Museum in New York on Thursday. The ad hoc troupe will assemble to perform “Songs of Ascension,” a ritualistic work by avant-garde composer and choreographer Meredith Monk, who has been inspired by religious symbols shared across cultures. Meredith Monk Vocal Ensemble, the Stone Wall Chorus and the Montclair State University Chorus will perform “Songs of Ascension” at 6:30 p.m. and 9 p.m., March 5, at the Guggenheim Museum, on Fifth Ave and 89th Street. Tickets are $50 general admission and $20 for students. Call (212) 423-3587 or visit
