Noted actor Bill Murray teams up with distinguished German cellist Jan Vogler for a special one-night-only evening of classical music and literature in "Bill Murray, Jan Vogler & Friends: New Worlds." This intimate performance is presented by the Oshman Family JCC, where Murray brings his charismatic presence to the stage as both singer and narrator, complementing Vogler’s singing Stradivari cello. In a show that exhibits the core of American values in literature and music, Murray will recite and sing selections from Twain, Hemingway, Whitman, Cooper, Bernstein, Gershwin, and Foster. Through the recountal of some of the strongest influences for generations of Americans, audience members are given a picture of the charm, energy, and creative force that drove the creation of the New World. This fascinating event is the result of a shared desire between two masters of their art to communicate the bridges built by artists between America and Europe.
