Bill Murray is coming to the McCallum in Palm Desert…to sing and read from books

Bill Murray, a national treasure, is coming to the McCallum Theater in Pam Desert to perform this fall. But it probably is not what you would expect from the actor. 

“Bill Murray, Jan Vogler & Friends, New Worlds” will feature the Ghostbuster singing with a chamber trio and also reading selections of Ernest Hemingway, Truman Capote and Mark Twain, notes the Desert Sun.  The show will take place at the Palm Desert theater on the College of the Desert campus on October 7 at 8 pm.

So yeah, it probably won’t go like this…

Here’s the description from the McCallum website:

Bill Murray as you have never seen him before! Murray became friends with cellist Jan Vogler in New York. Curious about each other’s artistic world and interests, they decided to work together on New Worlds, a new project that showcases the core of American values in literature and music. Along with violin and piano, the 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 McCallum Theatre stage. Works by Bach, Piazzolla, Ravel and Bernstein complete an evening where music and literature meet in a kaleidoscope of words and notes.

Individual tickets are not yet on sale for the event, rather it was announced prior to subscriptions being sold starting this Tuesday at the McCallum.
