Billy Murray is no stranger to classic literature, having even played the role of the great Hunter S. Thompson once upon a time. The infamous actor and personality is coming to Schenectady, New York in order to speak at Proctor’s. Murray is set to read from classic literary works, as well as collaborate with famous cellist, Jan Vogler as part of the New Worlds tour.
The event will include music composed by Leonard Bernstein, George Gershwin and words once written by Mark Twain, Ernest Hemingway, and Walt Whitman. Each rendition will feature some of the most influential voices of America and give viewers a glimpse into a supposed “New World,” a world in which creativity and culture take higher priority than the concepts seem to in today’s current world.
Tickets for the event are on sale now via Proctor’s official website, or by phone at (518) 346-6204. Proctor’s, the event location, is on 432 State St. in Schenectady, New York.
The show, which will feature Wang playing the violin and Vanessa Perez sitting, playing the piano, is a harmonious event held by two passionate creators and connoisseurs of culture: Jan Volger and Bill Murray. While Murray’s venture into classical music may be young, his knowledge of art and literature is boundless. Any fan of Bill Murray’s on-screen performances will certainly enjoy an evening of classic literary readings by the acclaimed actor and comedian.
