Music at Amherst Parallels Series: Meredith Monk

October 20, 2012 - 8:00 pm to 10:00 pm (already occurred)

Internationally acclaimed MacArthur "Genius" Meredith Monk is regarded as both a "magician of the voice" and "one of America's coolest composers." Her wordless music embodies an alchemical mixture of technical virtuosity, poignant directness, interpretive suppleness and palpable excitement. Monk's performance at Amherst will reflect her groundbreaking technique and profound understanding of the voice's flexibility and expressive depth.

The performance is co-sponsered by the Amherst College Copeland Colloquium.

The box office for this performance opens for the Amherst College community on Monday, Oct. 1, and on Monday, Oct. 8, for the general public. Tickets are free, with a limit of five per person. For reservations or more information, contact the Amherst College Concert Office at 413-542-2195 or
