Glimmerglass 2016Writing and Singing - Singing and Writing: August at Glimmerglass Festival in Cooperstown, New York found Patrice performing three of her songs from The Long View, A Portrait Of Ruth Bader Ginsburg In Song.  Pianist/coach Sahar Nouri shared the stage with Patrice, Glimmerglass Young Artists and Notorious RBG herself, who gave her 4th annual presentation on Opera And The Law for a sold-out house.  Filming for an upcoming CNN documentary included interviews and informal chat with members of the ensemble and RBG, and a really good time was had by all!

Patrice is a featured composer on Cedille Record's new SPOTIFY Playlist Of The Month!  This month's theme is Chicago Composers, so Patrice will be heard singing "Anita's Story," her own composition on INTERSECTION: Jazz Meets Classical Song.  The playlist includes a wide variety of new and newer music by a wonderful variety of Chicago composers.  Check it out here

  • "A formidable interpretative talent” (The New Yorker ) with “a voice that is light, rich and flexible” (Opera News ), Ms. Michaels sings the concert and operatic repertoire, and presents four marvelously unique and entertaining dramatic concerts. She is recorded on over two dozen critically acclaimed discs for Cedille, Albany and other labels. Patrice is in demand as a master clinician, and serves as Director of Vocal Studies at The University of Chicago. (full bio)

     
  • 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.
