Meredith Monk (Night 1) at (le) poisson rouge
7:00pm Doors | 8:00pm Show | 18+
$35 table seating | $25 standing room
Recognized as one of the most unique and influential artists of our time, composer/performer Meredith Monk presents a concert of music from her newest work, Cellular Songs, with the women of her acclaimed Vocal Ensemble. A “deeply affecting meditation on the nature of the biological cell as a metaphor for human society” (Financial Times), Cellular Songs features some of Monk’s most adventurous and daring music for the voice to date, paired with violin, piano and keyboard. Over the course of the evening, shimmering, multi-dimensional musical forms evoke such biological processes as layering, replication, division, and mutation. Cellular Songs premiered to sold-out audiences at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in March 2018.

“As [Monk] sang, there was a palpable sense of love and joy between her and the audience that spoke volumes. An antidote to the troubled times we live in.”
-Virginia Webb, Financial Times
“[Monk] may loom even larger as the new century unfolds, and later generations will envy those who got to see her live.” –Alex Ross, The New Yorker
