The celebrated movie star in town this month for a concert at Koerner Hall


Published:

The Royal Conservatory of Music kicks off its 2017–18 season with a special gala presentation at Koerner Hall featuring the one-and-only Bill Murray, and get this, he’s going to sing. The acclaimed actor and comedian is also slated to sling around a few words from “Song of the Open Road” and “Song of Myself,” by iconic American poet Walt Whitman, as well as words by Hemingway and Mark Twain. And, apparently, there might even be a tango! Murray is scheduled to release a classical music album, New Worlds, on Sept. 29. An ensemble, led by Murray’s friend cellist Jan Vogler, will perform works by Bach, Piazzolla, Ravel and Bernstein as featured on the forthcoming recording. For ticket information go here.
