November 9, 10. Singer, composer, filmmaker, and choreographer Meredith Monk will need no introduction to devotees of the contemporary avant-garde. A pioneer of extended vocal technique and a Downtown New York legend for nearly 50 years, she’s been called “a magician of the voice” thanks to such singularly startling compositions as the signature “Gotham Lullaby” and its companion pieces on 1980’s landmark album Dolmen Music. Not to be missed, Monk performs with her acclaimed vocal ensemble this month at Bard College’s Sosnoff Theater in “The Soul’s Messenger,” a program that surveys her transcendent repertoire. (“John Cage: On & Off the Air!” celebrates the Cage Centennial with six works November 17.) 8pm. $15, $25, $35, $45. Annandale-on-Hudson. (845)758-7900; Fishercenter.bard.edu.
