News

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

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!
