Meredith Monk is a living legend in the world of contemporary classical music. The avant-garde composer, vocalist, director, and choreographer has carved out a niche all her own, even as she has made impactful forays into the mediums of opera, site-specific performances, music theater, and film over the course of a career spanning more than 50 years.

A winner of a MacArthur Fellowship (commonly known as a “Genius” Grant), a two-time Guggenheim Fellowship winner, and the recipient of a 2015 National Medal of Arts, Monk will bring her Vocal Ensemble to Rochester for a residency entitled “Dancing Voice/Singing Body” from Sunday, October 20 through Wednesday, October 23 at the University of Rochester’s School of Arts and Sciences and Eastman School of Music.
