The worlds of classical music and comedic genius collide when legendary actor and comedian Bill Murray and world-renowned cellist Jan Vogler bring their 'New Worlds' tour to Australia in November.
The two met during their travels and became friends in New York. Curious about each others artistic world and interests, the actor and the cellist soon had the idea to work together on a project.
The result of their creative endeavours is a show that showcases the core of the American values in literature and music. Twain, Hemingway, Whitman, Cooper, Bernstein, Gershwin and Foster are some of the strongest voices that influenced generations in America and gave the world a picture of the charm, energy and creative force of the 'New Worlds'.
'A truly enchanting evening.' - Billboard
Murray describes the idea as "the collision of America and Europe" in part reflected in the backgrounds of each of the four members of his new group. "We are from four different continents," he says.
"And when the continents come together, the music moves right across the peninsulas from one to the other. It's just a short journey from one continent to the other."
