Actor Bill Murray met German cellist Jan Vogler on a trans-Atlantic flight. The two struck up a friendship. Being interested in each other's artistic work, they came up with a joint project. New Worlds is a performance bridging the artistic legacy of America and Europe and highlighting the fundamental values of American literature and music. During their travels, the two men also met cellist Mira Wang and violinist Vanessa Perez, who will also perform in New Worlds. Celebrated for his long and fruitful film career in Hollywood, Murray will perform in a role unlike anything he's done before. The superstar comedian will perform pieces by Foster, Gershwin and Bernstein, in addition to reading excerpts from classic American poets and writers (Whitman, Hemingway, Twain) to the sounds of Vogler’s Stradivarius cello. A fascinating crossover of music and literature by two great masters.
