Robert Glasper + Paul Beaubrun

Robert Glasper's exceptional new collective, R+R=Now, and Paul Beaubrun will perform at the Bandshell as part of BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, presented in partnership with the Prospect Park Alliance.

Each member of R+R=Now is an underground icon in his own right, contributing to prestigious releases from the likes of Snoop Dogg, Jill Scott, and Herbie Hancock. The name stands for Reflect+Respond=Now, and the mission is to create music that speaks to the current socio-political moment. BRIC has commissioned the group to write a new piece of music for this show called The Liberation Suite, which will have its world premiere at the Bandshell as part of their set. The Haitian-American singer and guitarist (and Brooklynite) Paul Beaubrun opens.

Gates open an hour before the performance unless otherwise noted, and all performances are rain or shine. For the latest information, including weather updates, set times, seating configurations, and FAQs, please visit the BRIC website.
