Event Description

Bill Murray, actor
Jan Vogler, cello
Mira Wang, violin
Vanessa Perez, piano
An evening of music, poetry and prose

New Worlds blends classical music, American standards and literary readings, from composers like Johann Sebastian Bach and Maurice Ravel to authors such as Ernest Hemingway, Walt Whitman and Mark Twain. Actor Bill Murray will perform several tunes, including Stephen Foster's "Jeanie with the Light Brown Hair" and a West Side Story medley of "Somewhere," "I Feel Pretty" and "America."

Murray and Jan Vogler met during their travels and became friends in New York. Curious about each other’s artistic world and interests, the actor and the cellist soon had the idea to work together on a project. The program would showcase the core of American values in literature and music and communicate the bridges artists have built between America and Europe. Twain, Hemingway, Whitman, Cooper, Bernstein, Gershwin and Foster are some of the strongest voices that influenced generations of humans in America and gave the world a picture of the charm, energy and creative force of the New World.
In 2017, the joint program celebrated its premiere. The Hollywood star’s love for classical music is young and his art of language boundless, giving all the more reason to look forward to a fascinating encounter between great music and great literature featuring two masters of their art.
