In gratitude for the life, work, and legacy of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who worked so tirelessly to make the world a better place for all, we dedicate this recital to her.
Our very first duo recital together took place at the Supreme Court in November 2015, where we performed at the invitation of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. We were deeply honored to be asked and elated to have a chance to share with her how her work had impacted our lives.
That experience immediately became – and has remained – one of the high points in each of our careers.
In this moment, we are mourning the tremendous loss that so many of us are feeling at Justice Ginsburg’s passing. And the timing is hitting home for us in a deeply personal way.
One of her great loves in this life was music, and her support for us as artists was palpable and humbling. That we are now able to sing publicly for the first time in more than half a year, just as she has departed, makes this poignant moment even more meaningful to us.
עליה השלום. (Peace be upon her.)
