Looking Ahead: Meredith Monk has been named Carnegie Hall’s Richard and Barbara Debs Composer’s Chair for the upcoming 2014–15 season. This celebration of her five decades in performance arts consists of special events, concerts, premieres, and unique programs that highlight her pioneering vocal techniques and collaborations with world-renowned artists.

"When the time comes, perhaps a hundred years from now, to tally up achievements in the performing arts during the last third of the 20th century, one name that seems sure to loom large is that of Meredith Monk. In originality, in scope, in depth, there are few to rival her." — The Washington Post
