  • Patrice is composing a song cycle titled The Long View, which will premier at the Second Circuit Bench/Bar meeting in May as the semi-annual special featured event. The subject of the song cycle is Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, as depicted through the words of a variety of individuals who’ve known this incredible woman in varied ways throughout her eight decades. “Anita’s Story,” released as a single song on the INTERSECTION: Jazz Meets Classical Song CD last year, is included in this musical tribute, which will be sung by Patrice at the premier, collaborating with pianist Kuang-Hao Huang.
