Patrice Michaels's Notorious RBG in Song

  • Spertus Institute 610 South Michigan Avenue Chicago, IL, 60605 United States (map)

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has served on the high court for 25 years. A skillful and passionate advocate for equal rights, Justice Ginsburg has become a pop-culture icon known to fans as Notorious RBG, a wry nod to fellow Brooklynite, rapper Biggie Smalls, the Notorious B.I.G.

Justice Ginsburg’s life and work are celebrated in this one-act dramatic concert featuring soprano/composer Patrice Michaels (called “a formidable interpretative talent” by The New Yorker) with her collaborative pianist Kuang-Hao Huang and their guests, soprano Michelle Areyzaga, tenor Matthew Dean, and baritone Evan Bravos.

For Justice Ginsburg, this concert and the accompanying CD are personal. These songs about her life are presented (and in many cases, written) by her daughter-in-law (Michaels) and produced by her son, Cedille Records founder James Ginsburg.
