New Worlds is a project that showcases the core of American values in literature and music. Noted actor Bill Murray teams up with distinguished German cellist Jan Vogler, alongside violinist Mira Wang and pianist Vanessa Perez, to present a spirited evening of music and literature.
In this rare live appearance, Murray – as both singer and narrator – brings his charm and wit to songs by Foster, Gershwin, Mancini, and Bernstein, as well as readings of classic American poetry and prose in dialogue with Vogler’s singing Stradivari cello. T
he Hollywood-A-lister and virtuosic cellist perform a program that celebrates Murray’s love for classical music and the strong artistic voices that have influenced generations of artists. Murray will read Hemingway, Capote and Mark Twain, dance a tango, and sing on the Center’s stage. Works by Bach, Piazzolla, Ravel and Bernstein complete an evening where music and literature meet in a kaleidoscope of words and notes.
