Bill Murray, Jan Vogler and Friends at Proctors

New Worlds Bill Murray Jan Vogler

Bill Murray -- yep, that Bill Murray -- is set to appear at Proctors April 9 as part of a music and literature performance with cellist Jan Vogler. Tickets go on sale to the public this Thursday, February 8 -- they're $50 and up.

Show blurbage for New Worlds:

A program that showcases the core of the American values in literature and music. A show that communicates 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.
The Hollywood star's love for classical music is young and his art of language boundless. All the more reason to look forward to a fascinating encounter between great music and great literature featuring two masters of their art.

Here's a trailer for the show that might give you a better sense of what it's like, along with a CBS Sunday Morning segment.

As the story goes, Murray and Vogler met in an airport (there was apparently a "cello in the overhead compartment" joke.) They're joined by violinist Mira Wang and pianist Vanessa Perez.

Comments

This event promo photo of Bill Murray is exactly what woman in the Entertainment Industry are finally protesting #metoo Why does the woman have to sit on Bill Murray's lap? IMO she appears to be trying to protect her body from his hand placement. And, any announcement of Bill Murray "& friends" is dubious.
