Meredith Monk & Vocal Ensemble and Bang on a Can All-Stars perform “MEMORY GAME” at the Ford on Thursday, August 31. The Experimental trailblazers join Meredith Monk for a supercharged musical ride celebrating her 80th birth year.

MEMORY GAME is both a look back at a pivotal point in Meredith Monk’s storied career, and a richly layered portrait of how vocal music—under the guidance of an indefatigable master—can play with our expectations in poignant and compelling ways. For this journey, Monk and her ever-versatile vocal group join forces with Bang on a Can All-Stars, whose “lean, emphatic, and muscular execution suits the precision of Monk’s writing perfectly” (The Wire).

This concert is presented in memoriam of Bang on a Can All-Stars founding member Robert Black.
