Monk’s lecture on Wednesday to a jam-packed Hallock Auditorium gave students a glimpse into her journey to stardom and her interdisciplinary approach to art.

Bartók here...Bartók there...

When you go to a four-hour concert of music by Béla Bartók, the composer and pioneering ethnomusicologist, you know that you’re going to have an interesting audience.
