Notorious RBG in Song

Athlone Artists is pleased to offer Patrice Michaels’ dramatic concert saluting the life and work of legal pioneer Ruth Bader Ginsburg as part of its Chamber Concert Series. Patrice Michaels conceived of the “vivid and beautiful” (Classics Today) 75-minute dramatic concert in 2018 to honor the life and work of legal pioneer Ruth Bader Ginsburg in celebration of her completion of 25 years on the United States Supreme Court. Justice Ginsburg, a longtime crusader for equal rights, became a pop culture icon known as “Notorious RBG” (a wry nod to the late rap artist, The Notorious B.I.G.). The musical narrative is anchored by Michaels’ song cycle The Long View, and includes works by contemporary American composers Lori Laitman, Vivian Fung, Stacy Garrop, John Musto, and Lee Hoiby, each celebrating a different aspect of Justice Ginsburg’s values, experiences, and relationships. “‘Notorious RBG in Song’ emerged as a loving tribute to its subject, cast in a neoromantic language recalling Samuel Barber and streaked with moments of jazz rhythm and harmony. Justice Ginsburg’s story deserves no less.” – The Chicago Tribune
