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!

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.
