The M6: Meredith Monk Music Third Generation
The M6 is a vocal ensemble dedicated to continuing the legacy of legendary composer/singer/director Meredith Monk. The members of the group were among 19 singers chosen from around the world to participate in a professional training workshop offered by Monk and the Weill Music Institute at Carnegie Hall in January 2006, culminating in the Meredith Monk Young Artists Concert at Carnegie's Zankel Hall.
In 2007 six of the participants reconvened to form The M6 out of the desire to continue learning Monk's work through direct coachings with the composer herself, as well as with past and present members of her Vocal Ensemble. Since the majority of Monkâs work is created and taught in the oral tradition, the group is devoted to immersion in this process and believes it is vital in order to assure that her extraordinary work lives on. The current program includes selections from Monk's Book of Days and Facing North and Volcano Songs.
