Escondido, California — :

The California Center for the Arts, Escondido is extremely proud to present legendary actor Bill Murray, and distinguished cellist Jan Vogler, as they perform an evening of music, poetry, and entertainment in a SOLD-OUT show!

Beloved comedian and actor, Bill Murray, takes the stage in a rare live performance, as singer and narrator to this exquisite evening you’re not soon to forget. As star of classic films like Ghostbusters, Groundhog’s Day, and Lost in Translation, Mr. Murray uses his famous charm and wit to bring to life classic literature and sing some of his favorite songs.

Joining Mr. Murray is world-renowned German cellist Jan Vogler. Mr. Vogler has performed all over the world recently as a featured soloist with the New York Philharmonic, Boston Symphony, National Taiwan Symphony Orchestra, and performed the Britten Concerto with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. Mr. Vogler was the youngest principal cellist in the history of the Staatskapelle Dresden Orchestra, at age 20, and has since gone on to win several awards including the 2014 Echo Klassik Instrumentalist of the Year.

Along with violinist Mira Wang and pianist Vanessa Perez, Vogler and Murray breathe new life into songs by Foster, Gershwin, and Bernstein, as well as classic American poetry and prose.

This rare and wonderful evening hits the California Center for the Arts, Dec. 1st at 7:30pm, in the beautiful Concert Hall.
