Earlier this month, two acclaimed musicians—Questlove and Maggie Rogers—joined The New Yorker’s Kelefa Sanneh live onstage for a conversation that probed 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—the co-founder of the Roots and the musical director of “The Tonight Show”—was one of Rogers’s professors while she was an undergraduate at New York University, and the two have stayed in touch. Rogers received a 2019 Grammy nomination for Best New Artist, after the release of her début album, “Heard It in a Past Life.” At the event, she performed songs from her latest album, “Surrender.”

Plus, as Roger Federer plays the final competitive match of his career, we revisit his conversation with David Remnick in 2019. “I think it’s nice to keep on playing, and really squeeze the last drop of lemon out of it,” he told Remnick at the time, “and not leave the game of tennis thinking, Oh, I should have stayed longer.”
