Earlier this month, two acclaimed musicians, Questlove and Maggie Rogers, joined new yorkers Kelefa Sanneh live on stage for a conversation that investigated an essential question for musicians and music lovers alike: How can music provide a spiritual experience, and how do we sustain that feeling in our lives? Questlove, co-founder of Roots and music director of “The Tonight Show,” was one of Rogers’ teachers while she was a student at New York University, and the two have stayed in touch. Rogers received a 2019 Grammy nomination for Best New Artist, following the release of his debut album Heard It in a Past Life. At the event, he performed songs from his latest album “Surrender.”

Also, as Roger Federer plays the last competitive match of his career, we look back on his conversation with David Remnick in 2019. “I think it’s good to keep playing and squeeze every last drop of lemon,” he told Remnick. at the time, “and not leaving the tennis game thinking, Oh, I should have stayed longer.”
