She has already achieved icon status from a fan-girl book, a bio-pic, a documentary, and many dissenting opinions, and now Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is being portrayed in music. "The Notorious Ruth Bader Ginsburg in Song" is a one-night-only event at 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 12, at Philadelphia's National Museum of American Jewish History, created, performed, and presented by those who know her well: soprano/composer Patrice Michaels (her daughter-in-law) and recording producer James Ginsburg (her son). The evening is based on a recording of the same name on the classical music label Cedille, with operatic music mostly written by Michaels.

The Thursday event at the National Museum of American Jewish History will be followed by a question-and-answer session with Michaels and James Ginsburg.   PHOTO: JESSICA HILL / AP
