Lensic Presents & SITE Santa Fe
Meredith Monk with Katie Geissinger and Allison Sniffin in Concert
Recognized as one of the most unique and influential artists of our time, composer/performer Meredith Monk returns to the Lensic with two members of her renowned Vocal Ensemble, offering a rare, intimate concert reflecting six decades of innovation and awe-inspiring vocal mastery. Presented with SITE Santa Fe, in conjunction with His Mark, Bruce Nauman’s first solo exhibition in New Mexico, opening at SITE Santa Fe on June 2, 2023.
Meredith Monk is a composer, singer, director, choreographer, filmmaker, and creator of new opera, music-theater works, films, and installations. She is a pioneer in what is now called “extended vocal technique” and “interdisciplinary performance.” Celebrated internationally, Monk’s work has been presented at major venues throughout the world.
In conjunction with her fiftieth season of creating and performing, she was appointed the 2014-15 Richard and Barbara Debs Composer’s Chair at Carnegie Hall. Recently Monk received three of the highest honors bestowed to a living artist in the United States: induction into the American Academy of Arts and Letters (2019), the 2017 Dorothy and Lillian Gish Prize, and a 2015 National Medal of Arts from President Barack Obama.
