Philadelphia, PA - Bill Murray will join world distinguished cellist Jan Vogler for their own clever live show and new theatrical album "New Worlds", on Wednesday, April 4, 2018 at 7:30 p.m. at the Philadephia Academy of Music.
Joining the them are close friends, violinist Mira Wang and pianist Vanessa Perez. Murray and Vogler got together during their travels and became friends in New York. Interested about each others artistic world passions, the actor and the cellist eventually had the idea to work together on a project.
“New Worlds is a program that showcases the core of American values in literature and music,” said Anne Ewers, President and CEO of the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts. “This collaboration between the legendary comedian and actor Bill Murray and master cellist Jan Vogler brings a new kind of production to our campus, a show of both beautiful music and iconic literature.”
The show highlights the connections each artist has built between America and Europe. Twain, Hemingway, Whitman, Cooper, Bernstein, Gershwin, and Foster are some of the strongest voices that inspired generations of humans in America and gave the world a picture of the charm, energy, and innovative force of the New World. In 2017, Murray’s and Vogler’s concept for a joint program celebrated its premiere. The Hollywood actors delight in classical music is young and his art of language boundless. All the even more reason to look forward to a fascinating experience between great music and great literature featuring two masters of their artwork.
