Ms. Badu has teamed up with composer Ted Hearne, conductor Alan Pierson, and the entire Brooklyn Philharmonic for two evenings of an incredible collaboration at BAM. New works by Mr. Hearne, arrangements of songs from Badu's New Amerykah Part One: 4th World War, and a couple of surprise guest appearances will surely not disappoint.
